If a trainer who is employed through a sports team caused the athlete to lose his rights to play due to the fact that the trainers did not stick to their protocol. In this case the trainer can be held liable for "neglecting" the athlete.

Confidentiality is extremely important. An athlete's medical information is not to be told to a third party by a physician or a trainer. However, it is in some cases ok to talk with that coaches/management of the team about the athlete's condition/progress, since they have the ability to see the medical records anyway.

There should be two different types of documentation, medical records and program administration records. Medical records are the history of a patient's medical interventions, while administrative records have physical exams, injury reports, plus insights from other professionals and their opinions,etc.
