Developers and HIPAA

HIPAA Violation??

I had an adverse drug reaction at work. I was taken to the ER. Our PA in our office accompanied me to the ER in the ambulance. I do not know why he did. He followed me into the ER. He witnessed me talking to the ER physician. I did not know he was there. He reported this back to my boss everything that was said between me and the ER physician. He reported back misinformation which was false also. Is this a HIPAA violation of the PA or the ER and Ambulance company? My work used this information to fire me.
