FL - privacy & medical records & HIPPA
#17
You have nothing to worry about other than the creepy stalker. Preventable is irrelevant and the injury is fully covered under WC. BUT if you begin to feel that the employer may not be acting in your best interest best to get an atty sooner rather than later.

Treatment obtained during workers' compensation that is directly related to the workplace injury may be exempted from the HIPPA Privacy Rule. If a covered entity treats the individual, that entity is permitted to disclose that individual's health information as necessary and to the extent permitted by workers' compensation laws. Covered entitles can also release information as necessary with the patient's explicit authorization to do so. Additionally, individuals cannot request, and do not have the right, to tell a covered entity not to share his or her personal health information if it is required to be disclosed as part of the workers' compensation law.

Thank you! That makes sense. Reporting his stalking is a delicate subject as we both work in code enforcement and work with and among all local/state police agencies on a daily basis. Also with budget cuts being implimented Oct 1st, rocking the boat might cost me my job. I love my job and they know it.

Well, I can say this. Do nothing, and you have nothing to loose. Take a chance you can loose your job. But, if you can prove the issues at hand, you can Sue for your job back. That's why you need to go over this persons head. Like yesterday. Or, sit back, let the person do what ever they like, as they feel free to do so now. Next thing you know, you will be saying you saw this person lurking in through your window while walking freely through your home after getting out of a shower or something. It happens... And snaps even more photo's...

Side note: There is NO dispute that the injury was received on the job during the normal course of duty. This type of injury is very common, happens almost daily, and the risk is just part of the job, whether we are wearing PPE or not. This isn't the first time I have had this same type of injury but no one in my dept has ever had an injury as serious as mine. It sure sounds like they are setting up new SOP protical. My supervisor is saying that because the injury was preventable, they are not covering it.
