Physical Therapy did not provide me a Notice of Privacy when I first started treatment.?

PT did not provide me a Notice of Privacy when I started treatment or at all. We made some agreements that apparently were stated in the Notice of Privacy requiring additional paperwork I was suppose to ask for and fill out. Not having the Notice of Privacy to inform me of this paperwork or agreeing to it, put me at a disadvantage.

Me and my PT agreed that she would email me my home exercise programs and what not. She never did. Apparently I was suppose to ask for paperwork for her to communicate through a given source. Now my chart notes are inaccurate of my care.

What do I do now? I live in Washington State.

Thank you!

    Why haven't you asked for it and filled it out? You have to take some responsibility for failing to do so.

    There is about 99.99999% chance that you signed a privacy notice.

    And even if you didn't, there are probably at least 2 notices posted in the waiting room and other areas of the PT facility.

    This is what I am reading:

    - the PT & you agreed that she would email you some exercises

    - when you didn't receive it, you didn't follow up

    - as a result, the PT thinks you have been doing at home exercises and you haven't been

    - you will now tell her that you never received the items.

    - the PT will now make a notation in the chart that you were not doing the at home exercises but will get them now and begin to do them (if they are still needed)

    Did I miss anything?

    Contact the clinic and discuss it with them
