Unfortunately I think HIPPA goes out the window if you are a danger to yourself or others.

I’m not sure about all three of those questions, but there is a new federal mandate that requires doctors/nurses to ask all patients whether they feel threatened (it’s driven by domenstic abuse concerns). It looks the the VA expanded those questions for the Vets. Nanny State is here.
