Cops: Ex-nurse stole medical records, drugs

Jessica Pierce reports:

While searching the home of a former Thompson Hospital nurse, police say they found hundreds of syringes, medicine vials and — possibly most disturbing — the private medical records of dozens of patients.

Only about six of the records were for Thompson patients, while the others were for patients at other hospitals and medical facilities, including Highland Hospital and Strong Memorial Hospital, both in Rochester, said Canandaigua police Detective Scott Kadien.


Regina Morano, vice president of corporate compliance and privacy officer for Thompson Health, said in a prepared statement, “Thompson Health has strict procedures in place to protect all patient information. It was because of our own internal monitoring process that we were able to immediately identify this activity, collaborate with the authorities, and to take additional steps to protect our patients and their medical records.”
