FOLKSTON – Residents combing through trash left at a closed physicians’ office under renovation found a box of medical records this week.
The records were apparently left in the office when physicians closed their practices there several years ago.
The unidentified woman who discovered the records turned them over to Capt. Kenny Jones, a deputy with the Charlton County Sheriff’s Office, on Tuesday.
Jones said several doctors had offices in the building in the past and he didn’t look at the records to determine whose office they came from. He delivered them to Charlton Memorial Hospital and asked officials there to determine what should be done with them.
Interim hospital administrator Dee McKrow, said the 3-foot- square cardboard box was “heaping full” of records.
“We were asked to hold these records, even though they have nothing to do with the hospital,” she said.
