You're a good egg,
So I've been watching a lot of The Sopranos lately and it made me wonder how disclosure of illegal activities holds up against doctor patient confidentiality?
Here's when I can break confidentiality and when client information has to be released. But I can redact information that would go to a court or if a client were to ask for their records if I feel harm would come if that particularly information was disclosed. Just a quick thing, a court ordered released needs to be signed by a judge or a representative of a judge. A cop can't get those records without a court order and lawyers, try as they might, can't get records without a judge's order.
In terms of illegal activity, I can't release any information unless there's a likelihood of immediate harm as listed in that link I offered. Here's an odd issue. If a client reports past harm, like a murder that they committed, I can't tell the police or anyone about that crime because it already happened. I can only break confidentiality for immediate, future harm. Odd huh?
