PA: Patients' records scattered outside abandoned clinic
Susan Evans reports in the Tribune-Democrat:
Medical records at an abandoned and dilapidated clinic in Colver have been thrown around the building’s parking lot and on the side of the road, despite a county agency’s promises that patient information had been removed.
Cambria Township police Officer Boyd Sherry confirmed that he responded to a call from a neighbor on May 3 and found X-rays, patient files, billing information and medical materials strewn outdoors.
“One of the doorways was wide open, and anyone could have gotten into the building,” he said.
Upon learning of the incident, county commissioners instructed the director of the county agency that has owned the clinic since 2004 to remedy the situation.
