Man Sues CVS For Telling Wife About Viagra Prescription

Man Sues CVS For Telling Wife About Viagra Prescription:  A New York man claims the actions of a chatty CVS employee who informed his wife about his Viagra prescription, caused his marriage to dissolve. 

Let’s face it, some secrets are just very “hard” to keep.  How long did he think he could keep this up?  Me thinks he probably wasn't using the Viagra at home.  Guess you could say the pharmacist kind of BLUE his cover.  Now, if it were me, I would have blamed that damn Alexa for placing the order.

One thing’s for sure, incidents like this can put a pharmacy somewhere between a cock and a hard place.  That said, they still should have at least waited 4 hours before telling his wife.  Obviously, she knew something was up - now what could it be?  Anyway, she drove right home and said “Honey, I've got a boner to pick with you!”  

So now it appears that the whole world knows.  From now on, its not gonna be easy for the poor guy to hold his head up high - and that’s the long and the short of it.  Talk about getting the shaft.  We can only hope he doesn’t try riding on any crowded buses or subways - at least until the prescription runs out.

Legal analysts say the judge isn’t likely to go soft on CVS, and that they could be facing very stiff penalties.  Not that it really matters - his wife is gonna take most of it in the divorce proceedings anyway.

You worked hard on that one, didn’t you?

I say the suit is likely to be successful, unless the guy gave the pharmacy a HIPAA variance. Those regs are strict.

I think this may be a growing concern for many men.

"If a patient’s rights are violated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), then the patient does not have a specific private right of action.

A patient cannot use a HIPAA violation as a direct cause of action in a privacy lawsuit. HIPAA creates a right to privacy, not a right to file suit.

However, if a HIPAA violation occurs as a result of a breach of duty, negligence, or professional malpractice, then such cases can be brought under state laws.

The law
HIPAA is a federal law signed in 1996 that addresses various health care issues such as insurance coverages, tax-related provisions, and group health insurance requirements."...

HIPAA includes the Privacy Rule, which establishes national standards to safeguard a patient’s protected healthcare information (PHI) and gives patients access to their health information. These standards apply to health plans, health care clearinghouses, and providers who manage health care transactions, including pharmacists and pharmacy staff."...

On the other hand, if Peg Bundy ever caught Al Bundy with an erection that lasted 4 hours, the last thing she would do would be to call for medical assistance....
