Mass. General Hospital paperwork for 66 patients lost on train

Boston Globe, March 24, 2009
Paperwork containing the personal medical information of at least 66 patients at Massachusetts General Hospital was lost when an employee apparently left it on an MBTA train. The hospital sent out letters to patients whose identities were included in the lost paperwork, telling them the information listed their names and dates of birth, and private medical information, including their diagnoses and the name of the provider with whom they met.
