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.
