I'm currently a paramedic and premed for PA school. I was on a call with a pediatric patient that attempted suicide with a significant amount of medication, so I called poison control. When I called Poison Control they were more instant than usual on me giving them the patients name. I was not comfortable divulging that information, nor have I ever been. I was curious how others felt about this situation, especially since it was a pediatric patient. Also, if anyone has any insight into the HIPPA standards for this scenario, it would be appreciated.
