My workers compensation claim was made in the State of California. I worked in a large hospital in Fresno.
My attorneys have repeatedly sent my paperwork, including my private health information, to the wrong department of the hospital. Everything should have gone to Employee Health; but first my info was going to Behavioral Health. That stopped when I told them they were sending my stuff to Psych. Now, it's going to Interventional Radiology.
I worked there for 20 years before I got hurt and was an RN in the Float Team ...so I knew everybody.
I know that it isn't a HIPAA violation to send information to my employer but is it one to send it to the wrong department?
