Ca: Alberta Health Services implements new privacy training following massive fall 2015 breach

Jeremy Simes reports:

Following a breach of privacy investigation at a southern Calgary hospital last fall, Alberta Health Services (AHS) has withdrawn or reduced disciplinary action against dozens of hospital employees, though they’re getting personalized training so it doesn’t happen again.

The breach involved 48 South Health Campus employees in connection to a Calgary police suspicious death investigation that occurred in the city’s southeast in September.

The health authority said it implemented a mandatory three-year cycle for completion of privacy training. The new policy says completion of such training is mandatory, once every every three years at a minimum.

Every three years instead of every year? C’mon…..
