Center for Health Justice has a free national inmate HIV prevention & treatment hotline service that accepts collect calls from inmates during our regular business hours (M-F 8AM - 3PM PST).
As the result of a recent County Health Department audit (2013-14), it was discovered that 4 CHJ client files were missing. A subsequent CHJ internal audit discovered an additional 10 client files to be missing. All 14 files were generated by the same CHJ staff member. Information about clients’ health condition, risk behaviors, personal identification, and contact information were possibly included in the lost files. It is possible that personal information may be disclosed to others as a result of this breach. CHJ takes this breach very seriously, and following HIPAA guidelines, is notifying the CHJ Community accordingly. CHJ has developed a 16 page data management policy to ensure that this breach does not reoccur (a copy is available upon request and posted on our website for 90 days). Please contact Director of Prevention Services, John Carlos Fabian by email (Fabian@healthjustice.net) or phone (213-229-0979) (collect calls accepted) for further information. CHJ apologizes for any discomfort or inconvenience this breach may cause the people it serves.
