Street Walking

From Social Security numbers to private addresses, sensitive information was scattered in the parking lot outside a family practice office Thursday morning.

Movers cleared the office of Dr. Charles Kay of Orchard Family Practice after Kay was evicted for falling behind on rent payments in the building.

Kay says he had to close his general practice after 15 years of operation because of bankruptcy.

The article does not elaborate on the cause of the bankruptcy. Wonder if he was a PCP who could not make it?

Kay says he has already taken care of most of his patients' private medical information.

"Along with my wife and daughters, we've moved somewhere between 12,000 and 14,000 charts to a HIPAA secure location," said Kay.

HIPAA secure location. Wonder if Jack Bauer could find it?
