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.
