I have been told by my work that I broke the HIPPA Act, which I have not. How do I defend myself against this accusation?

Question Details:

I am a pharmacy technician and my work fired me because they said that I broke HIPPA. I did not but how do I go about finding out what I supposedly did to break HIPPA. I believe that someone said that I broke it on a false act to get back at me for not being their friend.
