When it comes to the destruction of information, be sure to check HIPAA's recommendations. If you are having shredding done in house, create some sort of system that shows what was shredded, when and by who as you will not have the security system that would be furnished had you used a professional certified shredding company. Proper security protocols when dealing with confidential or sensitive information is not something to take lightly. Be informed and be prepared, so that you do not have to deal with the consequences of a security breach.
