Question: I sustained injury through a hospital procedure. In making claim to the hospital, I do not wish for a specific emplo

employee in authority, who likely would be called in to investigate, to be involved whatsoever. This is someone who I knew outside the hospital. And, although outside of the hospital, has committed egregious acts. Including having fabricated to me a medical condition. Which she also asserted she contracted from another employee (who I knew and with whom she had engaged outside the hospital). Also giving me cause to believe I was at risk. Because of her position of authority, I believed her assertions about the disease. She later admitted it was all fabricated. My question is whether, as justification in a request for non-involvement of this authority in the injury issue, am I able to disclose this act to the hospital; an act that occurred outside the hospital, more ‘personally’?
