Question Description

I’m working on a Health & Medical question and need guidance to help me study.

Instructions

Read the court case titled “Attorney Guilty of Unauthorized Disclosure of Medical Information” found on page 41 of your textbook. As you read the case study, consider both sides of the issue with regards to the psychiatrist and the attorney.

Once you have read and analyzed the case study, consider the concepts and topics discussed within this chapter and how they play into this situation. Next, answer the following questions regarding the psychiatrist and attorney:

If you were the psychiatrist in this situation, would you have allowed the medical records to be subpoenaed? Why, or why not? How can you appeal a subpoena of medical records? Do you believe that the psychiatrist in this case was guilty of a breach of confidentiality? Explain your reasoning.

If you were the attorney in this situation, would you have subpoenaed the medical records? Why, or why not? Considering the man’s medical history, could this be considered a breach of ethics? What if it involved child endangerment? Explain your reasoning as you answer these questions.

Respond to these questions in a Word document. Your responses should be at least one page, double-spaced, with Times New Roman 12 pt. font.

If you were the psychiatrist in this situation, would you have allowed the medical records to
be subpoenaed? Why, or why not?
As a psychiatric, it is my duty to follow professional ethics and thus I would have not
allowed the medical records to be subpoenaed. No patient wants his medical records to go public
without their consent (Lewis, Tamparo & Tatro, 2012). It is the right of people to have their
information to be kept in secret. Therefore, before allowing the patient’s medical records to be
subpoenaed, I would have contacted him and make him aware that I have received a subpoena...
