Abandoned Nursing Home Facility Creates Biohazard And Breeches Confidentiality Of Former Patients

A nursing home closed for business and abandoned is still causing a threat to past residents. The facility is a biohazard and holds confidential records that are accessible to anyone who would choose to walk in the door. The home is not locked, nor does it have surveillance.

Some of the biohazards include bloody syringes, prescription pills, and medical supplies. The confidential medical records that still remain cannot be disposed of for seven years, however, they should not be publicized during that time. For more, read the story.
