AU: Pharmacy sorry after records found at recycling centre
Sam Bidey reports:
A Jamison pharmacy has apologised for accidentally dumping hundreds of private medical records, including cancelled and out-of-date prescriptions, at a recycling depot earlier this week.
A Territory and Municipal Services officer was sent to the Belconnen Resource Management Centre on Monday night following a report that prescription medication had been found at the site.
The TAMS officer who inspected the centre’s recycling cage did not find any medication but discovered a box of medical records containing hundreds of private details.[…]
The documents from the Amcal Pharmacy in Jamison were incorrectly disposed of, the Pharmacy Guild of Australia said.
