Hereford Medical Center Under Investigation

The Hereford Regional Medical Center is being investigated by the Texas Department of State Health Services for violating HIPA laws.

An area man tells us the medical center violated the Privacy Act by releasing his medical information and telephone number to a co-worker.

The incident stems from a query fever scare in June at the Panda Ethanol Plant. All plant workers were tested for the bacteria. The man says he found out his test results from a co-worker. He is seeking financial restitution.
