What to do about a HIPAA violation at my son's pediatrician office
June 19, 2014 6:25 AM Subscribe
I needed a copy of my son's immunization records for some travel we are planning this summer. I called his pediatrician's office, and they said they'd send them right away. 2 days later an envelope arrived addressed by hand, the home address was correct but the recipient name was wrong. I opened the envelope to find another child's immunization records.

I'm pretty upset by this but I'm not sure if/how to pursue it with the office. We are very happy with the care our son's doctor provides, so we don't really want to leave the practice. I found the OCR portal to file a complaint, but I'm afraid that will cause friction between the Dr. and our family.
I know YANML but does anyone have any experience and/or advice?
