Thousands of medical records found on Detroit street

Email This Post Print This Post

Thousands of medical records were found along the side of a road in Detroit October 18, according to Detroit Local 4 news station. The records contained the names, addresses, and Social Security numbers of patients previously treated at the now closed Carpenter Health Center, previously located in Ann Arbor.

The records were placed in a storage facility and to his knowledge should have still been there, according to Irwin Lutwin, MD, whose picture was found among the files and who worked at the health center. The files are now in the custody of the city.

This is not the first time medical records have been retrieved from Detroit streets this year; in March the personal medical records of hundreds of patients from a now closed adult foster care facility were also found.

    Thanks for posting this. Very nice recap of some of the key points in my talk. I hope you and your readers find it useful!
    I think it would be better if it was three cubes, one that took the ipod and two other cubes that the speakers were in, that would have been sweet…someone should do that.
