Dear Prudence

So disclosing PHI isn't just against the law, it is rude.
Really, this is a good sign. When the Dear Abby's and in this case, Ask Amy's get involved, you know that we have come a pretty long way.
And there is a lesson here--- we sometimes forget, amidst the pain in the neck nit-picking details of the latest set of compliance rules that this information is private, that it belongs to people who should have every right to expect that their personal information not be broadcast to the world.
