Written PHI in Non-Secure Locations
Do I need to take any precautions when transporting medical records in a push cart within or outside the Medical Center?A protective cover should be used to prevent information being seen or items falling off the cart. The uneven streets and sidewalks create risk for a cart tipping over. A cover keeps the items contained and less likely to blow down the street. Contact your supervisor for assistance with purchasing the protective covers.
