Health Records Lost During Hospital Move

Minnesota NewsMINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minneapolis health system has notified about 1,200 patients that their health records are missing.

Fairview Health Services says a box of printed reports on patient health and billing information was lost when the billing office moved to another Fairview building in Minneapolis.

Fairview says the missing records involve patients admitted to Fairview Southdale Hospital for care between April 2010 and Feb. 18 of this year.

Fairview information privacy director Lois Dahl says federal law dictate that patients must be notified of a security breach of health information within 60 days.
