Three pharmacists in Indiana have been reprimanded by regulators for trying to access Prince’s medical records in the days after his untimely death in April 2016.

The Indiana Board Of Pharmacy recently issue the reprimands against each of the three individuals, who separately tried to access information about Prince on the state’s Inspect database, which doctors and pharmacists use to check the prescription histories of patients.

None of the pharmacists who have been reprimanded had ever treated the musician, who lived in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

So those are three who were caught due to logs and auditing. How many others may have tried to snoop in other states but weren’t detected because of inadequate logs or warnings?

How many breaches is the system generally failing to detect?
