Can I sue the hospital if a nurse gave my family incorrect information about my condition without my knowledge

Asked about 4 years ago - Richmond, VA

My family was given the wrong information about a CT Scan that I had while in the hospital. They were told that I had brain tumors all over my brain which was not true. Also, does the violate the HIPPA law?
