Physical therapist to pay $25,000 over unauthorized patient testimonia

Posted by @DanHinmon, Feb 23, 2016

A physical therapy clinic posted patient testimonials on their website without permission. The biggest surprise here may be that the fine is only $25,000. Painful lesson.

“Los Angeles-based Complete P.T. Pool & Land Physical Therapy will pay $25,000 to settle HIPAA violations for allegedly posting patient testimonials, including full names and photos, on its website without obtaining authorization.”

WITH full names and photos?!
