Q&A: Police tips

Compliance Monitor, January 7, 2009

Q: Say a police officer provided the name of a woman with a drug problem to a facility as a heads up. The officer reveals the woman got pain medication from another state, and lost her children because of a drug addiction and lifestyle.

Would it be a violation for the treating physician to say that, because of the police report, he cannot be a party to her drug-seeking addiction?
