(follow-up) DHEC employee fired after SLED inquiry

As a follow-up to a breach first reported earlier this month , WIS10 in South Carolina reports:

A probe into how improperly discarded medical documents from the Department of Health and Environmental Control ended up unshredded at a recycling center has been completed.

The State Law Enforcement Division’s inquiry found a DHEC was responsible for improperly discarding the documents and no criminal charges will be filed.

DHEC says the employee admitted throwing the documents away rather than taking them to be shredded. The employee was fired after SLED’s inquiry.
