Medical records privacy and safeguarding are required under law. By allowing a hospital, doctor or medical center to skate liability undermines the entire purpose of why HIPAA exists. Additionally, as reported by the Texas State Dept of Health, Parkland, within the last year has embarrassing violations! They had a single Administrative Penalty in August 2012 for $1 million! Then, four months later, had another fine for $10,000 for not complying with their corrective action plan due to their August $1 million penalty! The state of Texas lists Medical Records violations on their report on line two!  What a surprise!  Compare Parkland with all the other state hospitals/medical centers in Texas.  Parkland is dangerous and needs to be closed down!!  How can a county hospital such as Parkland get fined 50 times of what all of the hospitals in the state of Texas combined!  And how disgusting is this: One of the violations was for employees' failure to wash their hands!!
