Rowan Regional Medical Center, North Carolina: this hospital was investigated by OCR for a potential HIPAA violation. OCR did not find a violation, but the hospital has required the personnel involved to undergo more HIPAA training. The individual is going to sue the hospital, and the personnel, apparently. Stay tuned.

Interesting development regarding this case. The OCR has reopened the investigation. Sounds like Rowan Regional Medical is not going to have the get of jail free pass. I wonder if the employee's have had their corrective training or turned their resignations.
I had actually heard that from Teresa Defino, but haven't had the chance to post on it. I read the complaint in the case, but can't really tell what, exactly, the employees did. It will be interesting to see how it all breaks down.
