Families In The Dark With HIPAA Rules

A 17 year old girl was pregnant and although her parents suspected she lied and said she wasn’t even after she gave birth. She gave birth in the shower and then put the child in a cabinet where it suffocated.

Cheyenne Corbett is now on trial for the murder of her child and her parents are rightfully upset. They had went with their daughter to the doctor but could get no information due to the fact that Corbett signed a form saying she did not want her parents to get anything medical information on her.

The most puzzling part is the fact that these were not parents that threatened or would have thrown her out. She had seen for herself the loving and care her parents exhibited towards her older sister who had also become pregnant in her mid teens but for whatever reason she was afraid to tell them and now faces a long time in prison.
