Feds: Jackson Memorial patients' records were sold in scheme

Miami Herald, July 31, 2009

A Miami man was charged with buying confidential patient records from a Jackson Memorial Hospital employee over the past two years and selling them to a lawyer suspected of soliciting the patients to file personal-injury claims. Ruben E. Rodriguez allegedly paid JMH ultrasound technician Rebecca Garcia $1,000 a month for the hospital records of hundreds of patients treated for slip-and-fall accidents, car-crash injuries, gunshot wounds, and stabbings, federal authorities said.
