BEND, OR -- Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel launched a criminal investigation Friday into the breach of patient records at St. Charles Health System. Hummel says he learned through media reports that an employee accessed thousands of patient files without authorization over the course of several years.

 

He issued a statement saying in part, "An alleged breach of this magnitude should have been reported to local police so that a proper criminal investigation could be conducted - as far as I'm aware this did not happen." The D.A.'s office will work with local law enforcement to analyze whether any criminal laws were violated.
