There is rumor floating about concerning the nature, extent and severity of the man's injury, and those who know him well enough or who have followed this story are well aware of the situation, but nothing has been confirmed officially. Hence, the extent and severity officially are unknown.

And if the poor gentleman is still hospitalized, can we maintain some dignity along with HIPA compliance?

Its not HIPA is HIPAA, which is a law to protect the privacy of individuals..The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides federal protections for personal health information held by covered entities and gives patients an array of rights with respect to that information. At the same time, the Privacy Rule is balanced so that it permits the disclosure of personal health information needed for patient care and other important purposes. Therefore, there is no discussion of this person's private medical information.. The law does not directly apply to the news media (unless a media employer acts as a health plan or healthcare provider – by offering onsite medical care, for example; or a reporter works for a publication that is covered – such as a hospital newsletter). Before spewing "HIPA".. learn what it is..EXACTLY,

Rest assured, I know it well and have litigated it much. Your explanation is nonsense and will not hold up. But Wow-wee, you caught me with a typo. You feel better?
