A Winnipeg woman is wondering why Health Sciences Centre keeps faxing her other people’s medical info.
Linda Rock has been receiving what looks like referral forms from Health Sciences Centre for over a year.
They contain sensitive information like the patients name, personal data and detailed medical information.
Rock told Global News that she just wants it to stop.
“I’m very disturbed that I’m seeing other peoples’ medical information. If I was the patient knowing this was going to someone’s house, I would be horrified,” she said.
She says she told the HSC last year and the faxes stopped for a while, but started coming again in February.
“You’d think they would be extra careful if it had happened once, but for it to start again, that’s crazy,” she said.
Global News was told the faxes were the result of an incorrect number, which has now been fixed.
