Legal Question

Asked on: 9/08/10, 1:22 pm

If a minor is hospitalized and is found to have a positive blood/alcohol level, what is the law concerning notifying the parents?

Is there a confidentiality rule that practitioners must abide by?

Being that the recognized legal age for this type of notification is 18 years old, is there a limit on how young/old the child must be in order for parents to be notified?
