That is the law and also that is how the care giver would want to be treated if the situations were reversed.

No individual has the right to violate the privacy of another. The Health Insurance and Portability Act of 1996, which was phased in from April 2001 - April 2003, is the Federal Statute that guaranties that protection.

Privacy includes medical information exchange.
