Shredding

Our family practice now houses a laser tech. They are their own corporation but work under the guidance of our M.D.

If the laser techs fail to shred their PHI documents, are they solely responsible as their own business or is the family practice MD also liable because it occurred under her roof even though she is a separate corporation?
