MORE than one week after a major security breach, Queensland Health still does not know how a number of sensitive medical documents were left lying in the gutter.
Rockhampton Hospital began an investigation into the security breach early last week after The Morning Bulletin carried a story revealing that sensitive medical documents were left in a public street for more than an hour and a half.
Last Friday, eight days after the breach, CEO of Queensland Health Central Queensland Rod Boddice was still tight-lipped on the issue.
When asked for comment on the progression or outcome of the investigation Mr Boddice declined to comment.
"I have nothing more to say," Mr Boddice said.
The alarm was raised after The Morning Bulletin revealed the papers remained in a public street even after hospital staff were made aware of the situation.
The documents remained unsecured until a Rockhampton resident and a journalist from The Morning Bulletin retrieved the paperwork and returned it to hospital staff.
The paperwork did not contain patient files, however, it is alleged the unsecured documents contained sensitive information including a list of names and contacts for the mothers of children who were identified as at risk of neglect.
