Privacy Allegations Against Ohio Hospital

Two Ohio women, Vicki Shelton and her daughter, have filed a lawsuit alleging their privacy was repeatedly violated at their local hospital.

Vicki said the hospital first alerted her that her ex-husband, Duane Sheldon who worked in the hospital's Administration Department, had inappropriately looked at her records. But when she received reports from the hospital she “was very disturbed by the number of people who had no reason to be in my records had been in my records apparently just whenever they felt like looking.”

"Both women believe [the hospital] did not have the appropriate procedures in place to protect their private records.."
