State Bar of Texas Health Law Section Report (Fall 1996) Court Holds Hospital Has Duty to Warn a Third Party That Partner May Have HIV

Health care professionals who discover some disease or medical condition which their services or products have likely caused to a particular recipient and which may endanger a readily identifiable third party, owe a duty to reasonably warn the third party to the extent that such warning may be given without violating any duty of confidentiality to the recipient of services or products.


Texans trying to survive without health insurance

"It's not an issue of not working," said Anne Dunkelberg, associate director of the Center for Public Policy Priorities, which speaks for low- and middle-income Texans. "For many folks, it is simply just completely unaffordable."

Most are of working age. Thirty percent of Texans ages 19 to 64 have no insurance, compared with 3 percent of those 65 and older and 22 percent of children.

Most are U.S. citizens. Even if all noncitizens β€” legal and undocumented β€” were not considered at all, Texas would still have the country's highest portion of uninsured residents, 20 percent, Dunkelberg said.
