VA: Medical records blowing in the wind

CBS 6 reports that hundreds of medical records from patients at Richmond Dermatology and Laser Specialists were blowing around a parking lot. The records included, “patient lists, insurance information, social security information, phone numbers and treatment records that included one patient being treated for the herpes STD.”

So how did the medical office respond when passersby called them to alert them to the problem? According to the news account, they were told that the office was “busy and that they had patients.” Uh huh.
