    worried about HIPAA says:

    Does reporting medical emergencies, and specifics thereof (including where, what, when) not violate HIPAA? It’s a fuzzy line, and it makes me uncomfortable.

      Put your worries in a wastebasket says:

      The HIPAA privacy rule only deals with healthcare providers, health plans and health care clearinghouses. I doubt this info came from any of those sources. Furthermore, there aren’t any real identifiers of the person involved in the medical emergency, so I don’t think it’s an issue anyway.
