Although a mask can provide protection from COVID-19, more is needed to ensure that you are protected in a health crisis. This is top of mind for health care workers, first responders and educators as the global struggle with the pandemic continues.
At Debra Robinson Law Group, we strive to be there for our community, just as we are for our clients. It is in this spirit of service that I am pleased to announce a charitable initiative from our firm aimed at providing peace of mind for essential workers in our community.
We are now offering free Health Care Directives for health care workers, first responders and educators in Fulton, Cobb, Gwinnett and Forsyth counties.
Under the federal HIPAA privacy laws, health care providers are prohibited from disclosing an adult patient’s private medical information, unless authorized by the court through a legal guardianship, or authorized by the adult in writing. It doesn’t matter if you are a relative, even if you are the mother or father.
In a Georgia Advance Directive for Health Care, an agent is named to make all health care decisions if the injured or ill adult is unable to communicate his wishes, and the agent is authorized under the HIPAA privacy laws to have access to all private medical information.
If you are an eligible essential worker, please contact our office at email@example.com so that one of my staff will be able to assist you. Please include your full name, contact information and your profession. You will be asked to provide a copy of your professional ID as part of the process.
In an effort to make as much time available to our team as possible to work on drafting of documents, we would appreciate communication via email only for this offer.
