(AP) — Lawmakers want the Kansas Legislature to investigate after a former abortion provider discarded hundreds of patients’ medical records in a recycling bin outside a Kansas City-area elementary school.
The general counsel for the state board that regulates doctors said Tuesday it will consider going to court for an outside custodian to oversee remaining records from the Kansas City, Kan., clinic formerly operated by Krishna Rajanna.
The clinic closed in 2005, shortly after Krishna Rajanna lost his Kansas medical license. Rajanna told The Associated Press he still has documents stored in his home in Overland Park.
The discovery of the discarded documents prompted an investigation by local police, the Johnson County district attorney’s office and the state regulatory board. Rajanna said he’d expected the bin to be emptied quickly.
