i work for this company and they may be breaking hipaa law. It's a grocery store chain. My girlfriend was taking a certain medication. My girlfriend works for the pharmacy and was begged for the 2 refills my girlfriend had left in one of her medications and was gonna pay high dollar for them at the beauty parlor while getting a haircut. She asked where this information was obtained and she said someone she works with. She asked that someone and they admitted to it. She didnt report it and one of her coworkers had overheard the situation because the beauty shop lady asked her for it in the pharmacy once again. So my girlfriend wrote a statement to protect herself because she didnt report it herself. Everything with that part is fine. It was reported to the human resources department and they suspended her and now she is taking the hipaa test again as a punishment. There was no real reprimanding other than that. It wasn't reported to the government like it should be. Why is she taking the hipaa test if nothing was wrong with what she did? its an excuse for a reprimandation so the greedy company isn't embarassed. This girl is going to get back at her and she knows it. she already had another worker try to buy cigarrettes back there from my girlfriend to try to get here in trouble, because you cant sell cigarrettes in the pharmacy. What can she do to protect herself and future victims inside this company? I obviously can't do anything about this because that would get her in trouble. thanks.
