Three hospital workers have now been charged for snooping into Rob Ford’s medical records following his cancer diagnosis.
Get this. If they’re convicted, they’ll be the first people EVER successfully prosecuted for this breach under the Personal Health Information Protection Act! Despite the fact that the public has learned of similar breaches numerous time, and assuming that it has happened numerous times that have gone unnoticed, nobody has been convicted of this act!
Court documents obtained by the Star show Caroline Goodridge, of Laurel Ave., Mohammad Rahman, of Massey Square and Debbie Davison, of Redbird Crescent, Pickering, all face charges under PHIPA.
Rob Ford’s files were accessed multiple times without permission at Humber River Regional Hospital, Mount Sinai Hospital and Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. Despite the fact that numerous individuals (at least 9) accessed his files across three hospitals, only three people are facing conviction!
What should happen to these three hospital workers? How do we stop this from happening again in the future?
