My question involves public health law in the State of: Texas
I just received a text from a disgruntled father of my daughter (we were never married) stating that he is going to give his ex-wife a copy of an audit that was done of me accessing her medical record so she can file a complaint to the Board of Nursing, Health and Human Services, and the Office of Civil Rights.
For one I never accessed her medical records nor his. I will admit, I looked in our system for his address/phone number since I was trying to find out contact info for him to proceed with child support case.
Is there a statute of limitation for HIPAA? How much trouble can I get into? I do not want to lose my RN license even though now my current job does not involve patients or medical records. If I am going to be in trouble, what type of lawyer do I need to contact? Ugh, I am so distraught now. He is just mad because after 10 years, he finally got caught and has to pay child support.
