So some here may know my story. That I have a mom in a NH with vascular dementia that was emotionally, financially, and finically abused by an older sibling. She has been in the nursing home for 10 months, during which time we have kept her whereabouts known to very few people in order to keep her safe.
We do not have a restraining order in place as of yet. Last Thursday my mothers abuser showed up at the NH, making false accusations and getting her agitated. We are not 100% positive how he found her but I suspect a Hipaa breech. Not from her NH, as they are aware of the situation. I believe that it came from one of two places. It either the healthcare alliance that she went to from April of 2015- may 2015, as this is the same Dr's office that the abuser goes too, or it was a hospital that his ex wife works at. She works in medical records in a hospital that has affiliations with her Dr, and two of the hospitals that she has been in in the past 10 months. I strongly believe that one of these offices caused the breech and reported her whereabouts back to her abuser. Does anyone know how I can have an investigation started? I am her MDPOA, so it shouldn't be a problem with anyone talking to me, and I have been told that there will be an electronic signature on her records that will show who has accessed them.
