Here's an article in the Olympia, Washington newspaper on the impact of HIPAA on friends and family seeking information on hospitalized loved ones. Interesting point regarding "imprisonment" in nursing homes: if a resident does not want to be listed in a directory (paranoia as an early manifestation of Alzheimers, perhaps), and they move rooms, family members won't be able to find out about them.
