Policy:  In the course of providing services to clients, Community Care is required to retain records about the individuals providing services to those clients. These records often contain personal information. It is the policy of Community Care to ensure that all privileged information regarding personnel, contractors, student interns, and volunteers is stored securely and protected with limited access. Procedures are adopted and maintained that specify positions with the authority to have access to these documents on a need to know basis. Disciplinary action up to and including termination will be taken with individuals who operate outside of this policy and these procedures.
