Zarwin Baum Attorneys Successfully Defend a Health Care Professional in Whistleblower Case

January 9, 2018

Dave McComb and Zach Silverstein recently represented a health care professional in an action under Pennsylvania’s Whistleblower Law.  When the client, a dentist, complained about conduct engaged in by another dentist, his employer terminated his employment and contended that he had violated HIPAA in making his report of wrongdoing. In addition, the employer disseminated internally and externally the fact that the employee had engaged in HIPAA violations. The lawsuit received local and national press coverage because, among other things,  it raised important issues about health professionals’ ethical obligations to report wrongdoing by colleagues and whether that obligation is impacted by HIPAA prohibitions on disclosing matters of patient health care. Shortly before the matter was scheduled to go to trial it was resolved by the parties under terms that are confidential.
