I think ethics and good manners certainly have there place but they don't have anything to do with HIPAA. If every personal book or magazine or "news" article was removed "poof" the stores would be empty. And all those crazy authors write everything down once you check out. And I wouldn't mind if someone mentioned my moms name in regard to a test she had done, as in " I saw Jeanie Beanie getting her cat scan yesterday. She looks good." No harm not foul.
