DOCTORS CANNOT CONSULT CLINICAL HISTORY WITHOUT PATIENT AUTHORIZATION
The AP has confirmed the sentence of one year in prison and a fine of 2,160 euros imposed on a cardiologist who accessed the medical history of his domestic worker when she was on sick leave.
The Chamber confirms the Judgment of the Court, which considered the accused the perpetrator of a crime of discovery and disclosure of secrets, but acquitted him of the crimes of sexual harassment and mental injury to the victim.
According to the resolution, the doctor accessed the nurse's medical record from the service of the Cardiology Unit of the Hospital, where she worked.
The worker had been incapacitated for work since April of the same year and the convict had access to her medical history without her consent or authorization, but only to find out the reason for her termination.
