. I have placed a complaint to the director/manager of PacLab for a HIPAA violation. There is now an internal criminal investigation taking place on a certain individual to see how much and often she accessed my personal file (she also released my lab results to a former mutual friend). She is a lady whom I do not get along with and have previously attempted to place a restraining order against, which was not approved by the judge two years ago. I was informed that I should have an answer by the end of business today on the result of the investigation. If, by chance, there was a HIPPA violation, what steps do I take from here? Thank you for your assistance.
