Ex-doc dumps abortion files in Kan. recycling bin?

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) – More than 1,000 private
abortion records from a defunct clinic have been found discarded in a recycling
bin outside an elementary school near Kansas
City
, Kan., prompting a police investigation and outrage from people on both
sides of the abortion debate.






The patient records found Saturday came from Affordable
Medical and Surgical Services in Kansas City, Kan., which closed after its
doctor, Krishna Rajanna, lost his medical license in 2005. The records detail
names, birth dates, telephone numbers, Social Security numbers and the patients'
health history, including if any abortions were performed, The Kansas City
Star
reported (http://bit.ly/GVUz7Z ). They included patients from almost
every county in the Kansas City area and beyond, from Topeka to Freeman, Mo.


Between 2000 and 2005, Rajanna was either fined or
disciplined four times by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts and inspectors who
visited his clinic in 2005 and reported it was not clean.


Rajanna said he threw the personal documents into recycling
bins at Brookridge Elementary School on Friday.

    Great! No one needs to know who has had an abortion or who the doctor was. It's great if they shredded them, not just throw in a recycle bin.

    How can someone like Rajanna, who is so primitive he doesn't even understand the importance of proper handling of medical records even become a doctor? He needs to be informed of the existence of paper shredders, apparently. (Of course, it's more likely the source of his problem is that he doesn't give a damn. It's probably why he is no longer licensed.)

    YIKES!


    First off .. medical records .. with personal identification information .. SSNs .. name, address, phone number, insurance information, everything about their conditions, the date/time of the abortion and results .. this is definitely a violation of the LAW (multiple charges should be pending)

    Secondly .. knowing he's been disciplined multiple times already .. for Health Code Violations .. and possibly that clinic (and MD) was going to be visited again .. (not just by local Code Enforcers, but perhaps .. they knew or suspected that the Medical Board of the state would also come down for a Visit/Inspection/Close down too?) means they got a whiff .. a suspicion .. that they were not only going to be closed down .. but perhaps a potential legal case .. was building against them?

    Third .. PROSECUTE .. ALL of that office .. from the operator to the clerical staff who participated in this (and any others outside of staff who participated)

    What do you bet this was done because the operator of the clinic .. suspected a grand jury was convened .. or suspected a raid was going to be happening in the near future too ..

    yikes
