That are strict guidelines given for this on the HIPPA website.  I know
because somehow I was delegated to write the procedure.  Just check out
their website and look at "physical safeguards".

I'm wondering what others do when selling used instruments that contain
EPHI (electronic protected health information). Do you destroy the hard
drive which also has the software programs, or is there another
alternative? I have an old Dako Autostainer that we have replaced and
would like to sell, but am faced with the challenge of eliminating the
patient information from it.
Dealers of used equipment, how do you address this problem? I expect you
see it quite frequently.
