Ca: Lawsuit filed against Central Health

The same attorney who has filed lawsuits against Western Health Authority and Eastern Health Authority over their recent privacy breaches has now sued Central Health Authority, too. CBC reports:

Shawna Thompson says her ex-husband’s wife inappropriately accessed her medical records, including lab test results and other confidential information that had been held at Central Health.

“I’m very angry and I’m outraged,” said Thompson, who is the complainant in a lawsuit brought by St. John’s lawyer Bob Buckingham against Central Health.

“I know she shared it with my children, so that would give me an idea that she has probably shared it with a lot of people.”

Thompson said Central Health didn’t do enough to protect her, as her files were viewed by the same person 22 times in the past seven years.
