Sauder Schelkopf is investigating a major healthcare data breach on behalf of individuals whose HIV status may have been exposed at the Metro Health Department in Nashville, Tennessee. Metro’s health director says an employee copied the data file to a folder accessible by the department and 500 employees can access that folder. The file allegedly contained information about individuals’ HIV diagnosis and social security numbers.
Sauder Schelkopf has significant healthcare litigation experience. In Washington, an emergency room nurse allegedly infected with Hepatitis C was injecting herself with a partial dose of narcotics intended for her patients and then injecting the remaining dose with the same needle into her patients. Read or case here. In Denver, a surgical technician exposed nearly 3,000 patients to HIV. Read about our case in the Denver Post. We are also currently litigating a case against Walgreens and Theranos in Arizona related to misrepresentations made concerning its “disruptive” blood testing. Read about it in USA Today.
