I have a major problem that i hope some people here can help me out with concerning my medical records. I am a medical marijuana patient and my regular family doctor is also aware of this and actually supports my use to control my pain issues. Everything was fine until i found out that my sister in-laws who both work in the medical field, decided to do some snooping into my medical records. They found out im a regular user of cannabis because of past blood work and tox screens and his notes im assuming, and i am not sure what else. They also now know of my past use of narcotic pain killers and everything else you can only imagine. I have basically been at war with my in-laws for the past 20 years, and now they have decided to cross that line trying to dig up any type of dirt they can. They truly are all fucking crazy!! The majority of both sides of my family are hardcore against the use of any type of drug, legal or illegal it doesn't matter. This medical records shit has basically put me in a living hell for the past two weeks, and has permanently changed my relationships with my relatives. Btw...my wife supports my use of anything i choose to use to help with my pain, and she is a strong supporter of marijuana and also supports the fact that i might ruin both of her sisters careers by going after them using HIPAA regulations. I have never went after my in-laws over anything over the course of all these years, iv been sitting back and taking it. But now it's game on mother fuckers. My question to you all is how do i go about proving that they accessed my private medical records? I am in the process of finding the right type of reputable lawyer right now, and i for sure will not let her family know what i am doing, or the hospitals they work at. Do i contact HIPAA or just let the lawyer take the necessary steps. I'm guessing that every time someone looks up a record in the system, there must be a history of who looked it up with dates and times? I know people in the medical field go down for this shit all the time, and usually end up with criminal charges on top of being terminated. My problem is that i am just lost and i honestly don't know where to start to get this rolling. Is there a way for me to find out WHO looked up what,when and where, before i even get a lawyer involved? Pulling my own records wont help. I need to know and see for myself WHO exactly looked at them. Stressed out to the max. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
