NC: Lawyer: Records dump a mix-up
Amanda Chan reports:
Boxes of patient records from a Charlotte psychologist’s practice were left at a county recycling facility last week because the psychologist’s sons mistakenly took the wrong boxes to be recycled, his attorney said Thursday.
Sean Timmons, who represents Carolina Center for Development and Rehabilitation and its owner Ervin Batchelor, said that because of an office move in early June, Batchelor packed up boxes of patient, office and financial records to be either disposed of or converted into electronic records.
However, after asking his two young-adult sons to take some of the office and financial records to the recycling center, they accidentally took boxes with the patient records to the West Mecklenburg Recycling Center, sometime between June 22 and June 24, Timmons said.
