OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Oregon Police say a lack of evidence will prevent them from charging a woman they say looked at the private information of hundreds of ProMedica patients.

Jamie Knapp worked as a respiratory therapist at Bay Park Hospital in Oregon for about a year, but recently resigned. ProMedica says Knapp had permission to view information of her patients, but viewed private information for patients she was not treating.

ProMedica says coworkers reported Knapp was improperly accessing the information back in April. According to ProMedica, Knapp was also seen changing out "sharp containers," which contain used needles and vials. ProMedica says Knapp was then asked to take a drug test, which she refused and resigned soon after.

"Because of a lack of evidence we are not able to bring criminal charges," said Oregon Police Chief Mike Navarre.

When questioned on the matter, police say Knapp told them she was just trying to help out.

Police say no financial information was compromised, and there is no threat of identity theft.

"She was not accessing records at a financial level; social security numbers level. So she was viewing records within the access that she was granted," said ProMedica Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital President Holly Bristoll.

A federal investigation into the privacy breech is ongoing and could last 2 years.
