CDPH Issues Notice of Employee Impersonation

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has notified all health care facilities that several facilities have recently reported visitors claiming to be representatives of CDPH and/or the California Department of Justice (DOJ) who were unable to provide appropriate identification when asked. To date, there has been no breach of medical information. However, CDPH advises facilities not to supply any patient health information to anyone claiming to represent either CDPH or DOJ who cannot provide appropriate identification. For more information, see the attached All Facilities Letter from CDPH.
