Army medical records dumped in the Woden paper recycling skip

By SheepGroper - 9 January 2014 19

dental record

It’s pretty bad that the complete dental records for a couple of guys was thrown in the paper recycling skip – the x-rays aren’t paper and shouldn’t be there.

I edited out names and numbers, inside the folders are the guy’s dental records in full and gross detail.

Yup, the same place that gave us dental records before. Mum always takes a look for anything interesting when she goes to make a deposit.

Wouldn’t that be breaking some kind of privacy law?

How would showing a random X-ray break any privacy law?

How can you identify anyone from a dental record?

Oh, hang on…

I’ve heard of specialists doing such a thing, but even then only when they have a sample to compare it to. The idea that someone will be able to identify this person based soley on an x-ray of their teeth is ridiculous.

Surely they can just compare it to the National Dental Records Database? I remember seeing something like that on that NCIS documentary.

In 11 years in the Regular Army, I can’t remember a visit to the army dentists after basic training. So much for regular check-ups or have I just erased the memories? (I do drink to forget).
