Legal Question in Health Care Law in Virginia

I have a Question. I went to the emergency room friday night for a Urinary Trac Infection. I was written four prescriptions. My mother called me as soon as i was out of the E.R. The first thing she asked was if they had written me any pain medication. I wouldnt tell her. She then called the hospital where I got the prescriptions and they gave her all the information she asked for including the name of all four of my prescriptions. I am a 21 year old femaile I do not live with my mother either. I think she had no right to do that. The Nurse at the hospital shouldnt have given out that info. Do I have a Case?
