HIPPA 2 1. Under HIPAA, are you legally allowed to view this patient’s medical information? Why or why not? In this case, it would not be right to view the patients’ medical information however it would be needed to view the contact information like in a chart, you will find the face sheet and it will have the patient's contact information which you can access because the patient needs his discharge information. However, looking at anything else in the chart would be violating HIPPA, you are only supposed to look for what you need and what is in your scope of practice. 2. In this case, how would you be able to correct your error and provide the missing documents and instructions to the patient while still protecting patient confidentiality under HIPAA? You would look at the face sheet and find the patient's contact information and call the patient to come back and pick up the discharge information or you could mail it. Now
