More HIPAA in the news (this time it's local):

I was watching the 10pm local news on the Dallas NBC affiliate a few minutes ago and they did a presentation on HIPAA. Featured prominently was a local Ft. Worth pharmacy, and the reporter telling the viewers that patients will not be allowed to send family members to pick up prescriptions. You also will not be able to find out if your husband or wife is in the hospital, and flowers will not be delivered to the patient rooms unless the patient has given written authorization.
