Notice about patient information
Osler Staff | Apr 28, 2017
On April 26, Peel Regional Police announced they have charged an individual with internal theft of prescription medication – a former hospital employee who had improperly accessed a limited amount of personal health information (name, hospital ID number, allergies, and unit visited) in order to access narcotics (Percocet) for non-hospital use. All patients affected have been notified directly.
At Osler, our commitment to patients is paramount. We take our responsibility to provide patients with safe, quality care, while protecting the integrity of their personal health information, very seriously.
