Ca: OIP Makes Recommendations After Library Book Returned Containing Patient Records
Joanne Francis reports:
After a library book was returned to Nipawin Public Library, with records containing personal health information tucked into it’s pages, a library employee contacted Kelsey Trail Health Authority (KTHA). An employee from Nipawin Hospital retrieved the records of approximately 19 patients.
Investigating it further, KTHA determined that a surgical assistant who was not an employee of KTHA but works as a physician with practicing privileges, Dr. A Lawani, had borrowed and returned the book to the library. KTHA reported the matter to the Office of Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commission (OIP).
