Code Blue: nurses’ details at risk
KIRO 7 investigated a report that 30-40 boxes containing personal information of nurses — “medical records, social security numbers, driver’s licenses, financial records, legal documents, bank records, W2s” — were being dumped in garbage cans of a local spice shop over the past few weeks:
The files appear to belong to a company called Code Blue Staffing Solutions. Code Blue’s name and logo appear throughout every box. The company, which placed travelling nurses in jobs, has apparently been closed for years.
