Wednesday, March 05, 2014 - Statement From Roper St. Francis on Patient Privacy

Statement from Roper St. Francis on Protecting Patient Privacy:

Roper St. Francis is committed to protecting the privacy of patients. This week, Roper St. Francis leaders learned that on August 1, 2013, one fax intended for an insurance company was inadvertently sent to a wrong number. The information in the fax contained the names of four patients, their dates of birth, dates of admission and insurance member ID numbers. Roper St. Francis leaders have personally apologized to the patients involved. The mission at Roper St. Francis is to heal all patients with compassion, faith and excellence, and this includes protecting their private information as well.
