Ashley County Medical Center investigates former employee accused of violating federal privacy laws

Gabrielle Phifer reports:

Ashley County Medical Center is investigating a former employee they claim inappropriately viewed medical records of 772 patients.

According to a release, ACMC’s policy and procedures revealed that a former employee, who has been identified as a nurse, accessed some patient information for purposes unrelated to care and treatment.

Based on investigations conducted by ACMC, it appears that the limited patient information was only accessed and viewed out of curiosity and not distributed or shared with anyone outside of ACMC.
