Inappropriate Behavior Leads to Suspension of Two Eastern Health Employees, Discipline Being Faced by Third


Inappropriate Behavior Leads to Suspension of Two Eastern Health Employees, Disc

Reports have confirmed that as many as two Eastern Health employees have been suspended without wages for a total of three months, over charges that they had unethically and inappropriately accessed patient files earlier during the month.

Also, a third employee has good chances of facing disciplinary action for carrying information and details on 74 children at the Janeway Hospital and 33 mothers in a carry-case that was stolen as a result of a vehicle break-in last week.

A formal news conference was called by Eastern Health President and CEO Vickie Kaminski on Wednesday afternoon to share information about the incidents with the press.

In one of the incidents, on March 01, an employee was able to gain inappropriate access to as many as 10 patient files. And the second similar incident, on the other hand, happened on March 08 when another employee gained access to 9 patient files.

"In both incidents, the staff members have been suspended without pay for three months", the CEO said.

The third incident happened more recently, on March 16, when a briefcase was stolen from a vehicle which was parked. Although Ms. Kaminski does not know where the incident happened, it was not the Eastern Health parking lot.
