It’s Happened Again!! – Medical records found on Calgary street
Alberta’s Information and Privacy Commissioner is investigating after detailed medical records were found on a Calgary street.
Information contained in the files includes names, birth dates, and surgical procedures.
The privacy commissioner’s office says there have been several instances of confidential records being misplaced, citing one example of some being found in a dumpster behind a hospital.
This case, just like all others, will require the office to determine how the information was lost in the first place.
Wayne Wood, who speaks for the Information and Privacy commissioner, says there is a lot of personal information in the files.
The investigation is expected to take several week and Alberta Health Services is also examining the files.
