Ca: Patient information shows up at wrong Corner Brook company

Colleen Connors reports:

Western Health faces a privacy breach after 10 pages of patient information were incorrectly sent to a company in Corner Brook Tuesday.

The documents include patient names, phone numbers and information pertaining to their doctors.

The paperwork also listed medical transportation expenses required for patients living at BayShore Estates, a personal care home in Irishtown-Summerside in western Newfoundland’s Bay of Islands.
