More proof that personal records are toxic waste. A dentist in Houston stored his customer records at a storage facility. I am sure he hasn’t upgraded to a records storage center due to the costs. However, he is still responsible to store medical records for years, even if they are no longer patients.
While working in the storage area a box was left outside and he left. The box was later discovered and reported to the local media. The dentist has apologized for the mistake.
It is easy to see why so many medical offices are moving to electronic document management to save on storage. Then they only need to worry about the shredding.
