Parkview Health Fined $800,000:

OK, this wasn't smart
, but the fine seems awfully steep, especially since it doesn't appear that the records were accessed. What happened? Parkview had records from a retiring physician, apparently intending to give them to other physicians taking over those patients. I guess some were left over -- 71 cardboard boxes full of them. The hospital stacked the boxes up in the doctor's driveway, even though they knew she wasn't home. Not a good idea.
