NC: Wake Forest Baptist medical records found in rental home owned by employee

Richard Craver reports:

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center said Wednesday that it has fired an employee who had boxes of medical records and documents in a home she owns.

Wake Forest Baptist, in a statement, did not identify the employee. According to Forsyth County tax records, the home is owned by Linda-Carolyn Bowden Turner, who could not be reached for comment.

The Winston-Salem Journal is not disclosing the address because it is possible there are more boxes with medical paperwork in the cluttered home and a shed.


According to FOX8, and confirmed by Savage, some of the records uncovered listed phone numbers, full names, Social Security numbers, Medicaid numbers, medical histories, diagnoses and medications.


Savage said, and FOX8 reported, that the documents appeared to contain thousands of confidential medical records that dated back at least 10 years.
