Radiologist breaches privacy via PACS and Medical Record System

Make sure you preserve the privacy of your patients and also make sure you have the rights to someone's medical record and images. Most of all, use your own password to access PACS and medical record system.

The radiologist is no longer working for the radiology group employed by Griffin Hospital. This radiologist was terminated in February of 2010.
