Asked on: 5/06/13, 7:50 am

I am a resident of los angeles who while going through a divorce had to seek care from the hospital my wife worked at for unusual high wbc count suggesting a confidential infection which may have in fact come from her. I asked the hospital to ensure she did not access my records as she had done so in the past and to maitain my confidentiality as the issues were medically related; the complaince officer agreed to do so and later disclosed to wife who removed my heatlh care coverage and left me with over 20ok in unpaid medical bills and deformity...is the hsopital liable for the disclosure? Iam a risk manager and graduate of law school please provide a substantive response. If the answer is they are liable please refer me to 3 firms in the los angeles area who would be interested in a contingent fee relationship. email me at alexanderinsurancegroup@gmail.com Thank you
