Another Pharmacy Trashing Patient Information
Jeff [10:24 PM]
: This time it's a small compounding pharmacy (Cornell Prescription Pharmacy in Denver) rather than a national chain, but unshredded paper records in the trash
are the culprit. Importantly, the pharmacy did not have HIPAA policies and procedures in place. No known harm was done, but the fine was $125,000.
"Failure to implement any written policies and procedures" equals $125,000. Key word: any.
