PA: Washington Health System suspends about a dozen employees

Rick Shrum reports that no one has lost their job (yet), but a number of employees of Washington Health System in Pennsylvania have been suspended during an investigation of inappropriate access to patient records.

The matter is believed to have been related to the untimely death of Kimberly Dollard, 57, of Amwell Township, on June 6. Dollard, an employee of WHS’ Neighbor Health Center, was killed when a car careening out of control rammed into the building. The driver, Chad Spence, 43, of Weirton, W.Va., and another person were admitted to area hospitals with injuries following the crash, which occurred about 12:30 p.m.

Pantuso said he could not confirm or deny that link, but said the suspensions are “related to a high-profile case.”
