Listen, my education is, due to basic HIPPA laws, I can not tell anyone anyone's personal health issues.
If this is a workplace injury, yes, that can be shared - although treatment or non-treatment is not.
But other then that, it's a individually identifiable health information that needs to remain private - and all I can do is encourage the individual to share the information with all the interested parties themselves.
Think, I tell my company manager I have cancer, my company manager tells the Director, the Director then tells other people, and all of a sudden my career is tanked, because no one wants to hire a PSM who has cancer. By telling other people, you might be putting yourself in a litigious situation.
But, I am wondering how far off center I am with these beliefs.
