Ca: Insurer must defend hospital nurse sued for breach of privacy: Court

Greg Meckbach reports:

Aviva Canada has a duty to defend a nurse who is being sued for privacy breach by a patient whose medical records were accessed in a Simcoe, Ontario hospital, the Court of Appeal for Ontario ruled in a decision released March 28.

The patient, known in court records as J.L., is suing Norfolk General Hospital as well as Nancy Oliveira, a nurse who used to work there. J.L.’s allegations against Oliveira have not been proven in court. Court records indicate that Oliveira was not involved in J.L.’s care at the Simcoe hospital, located about 70 kilometres southwest of Hamilton.

    Thought this was familiar.

    A quick search on your site for Aviva shows many breaches/court cases in Ca, US & UK. Just saying.
