Mc&B Fights for Your Privacy Rights
McShane & Brady has the privilege to represent a client who admitted to a small hospital for a medical procedure. A family remember of our client who was employed at the hospital learned of her admission, went into the computer records system and accesses her records. Our client valued her privacy and put her trust and faith in the hospital to protect her confidentially. That trust was violated. Soon, word spread throughout the town where our client lived and worked. She was humiliated and did not feel comfortable leaving the comfort of her own home. We expect and demand that hospitals and heath care workers respect patient confidentiality. When that confidentiality was breach, McShane & Brady fought for our client’s rights. We took on the hospital for lack of proper training of its employees to understand medical privacy and secured a significant settlement for our client.
