    I have a question for those of you who run medicals.  With videos such as this one showing injury victims, how does it fit into HIPPA rules?  With the address being pretty well known, and the injury description being burned hands, the patient in this video is pretty identifiable.  I'm curious if the govt would consider this an invasion of the patient's right to privacy?

      No. H I P A A does not apply to the public or the press. Period. You can always sue someone claiming an invasion of privacy but you are not likely to win because this is not a place where there was an expectation of privacy. This type of situation you describe also isn’t a concern of the government though many in public safety have at various times have mistakenly believed it was and used H I P A A as an excuse to violate someone’s First Amendment rights.
