Worker Sentenced For Revealing Patient Info

BALTIMORE (AP) — A hospital records worker who let others access patient information has been sentenced to time served and six months home detention.

Kenneth Elliott McDowell, 47, of Baltimore was also ordered to pay more than $22,000 in restitution at sentencing Friday.

Prosecutors say McDowell, who worked University of Maryland Medical Center and Bon Secours Hospital, took patient records home to hide that he was not completing his work and was submitting false reports.

Two people took personal identifiers and payment information from the files, including debit card and checking account information. They used the information to open credit accounts in the identities of the victims.
