When Prince died three pharmacists tried to illegally access his medical records


Three Indiana pharmacists were reprimanded by state regulators for trying to access Prince’s medical records days after he died last year, according to the Associated Press.

The Indiana Board of Pharmacy issued letters of reprimand and imposed penalties on the pharmacists after investigators with the state attorney general’s office found, they individually tried to access Prince’s medical records through a state database.

The pharmacists used Indiana’s online INSPECT database—a database used by pharmacists and physicians to check controlled-substance prescription histories of patients.

Officials found that even though the pharmacists had not previously treated Prince medically, they entered Prince’s legal name and date of birth into the database within nine days of his death trying to access his confidential records.

Prince died April 21, 2016, of an accidental overdose of the painkiller fentanyl.
