Optimal Health of Southern Oregon's HIPAA violation that they fail to acknowledge
Medical records sent for the wrong patient by the clinic. When notified of their mistake, Optimal Health refuses to respond.
Reviewed another patient’s records from Evergreen Family Medicine. No controlled substance agreement was on file. No Material Risk Notice was on file. Both of these are strongly recommended by medical organizations and the Oregon Medical Board.
To top it off the patient was discharged from the clinic because? They asked too many questions . . . took too much time . . . from what the records imply, yet NO dismissal letter was part of the medical record. Why not? It very well should have been in the medical chart because of the actions of the patient and the practitioner. Just another example of Evergreen Family Medicine doing things their own way, not the right way.
