Well the nurse by law can not give out that kind of information to a non relative. So she was lieing to him. This goes to show how sad society has become that they waste time with studies like these instead of important stuff. Like hmmm say curing aids or other stds, cancers, global warming, dumb arse people being pushed thru school even though they are failing because the teachers don't want to deal with them. The list goes on and on.
I used to work in a hospital, I currently work in a medical office, and I am familiar with the HIPPA laws. And let me just say one thing, laws or not, people talk. I would not be a bit surprised if that nurse did tell him that. I have never met a nurse/doctor/staff member/other misc healthcare employee who hasn't said something to someone that they shouldn't have. It's really not that far fetched, happens more than you would realize. Nobody really cares about it, unless specific details about the patient (name, insurance info, personal info, medications, diagnosis, prognosis etc) are given. But a nurse just telling someone that they give saline as a plecebo is nothing major.
