Disk with information on 200,000 visitors to Miami hospital stolen
Miami Herald, March 23, 2009
The personal information of more than 200,000 visitors to Miami-based Jackson Memorial Hospital over an 11-month period was on a hard drive that has been stolen, the hospital announced. Copies of the drivers' licenses of visitors from May 2007 through March 2008 were on a work station hard drive that vanished from a data center. Hospital officials recommended that visitors during that period place a fraud alert with a credit bureau. No Social Security numbers or financial information was on the missing hard drive, said Dennis Proul, the hospital's chief information officer.
