Patient information theft investigated at Johns Hopkins
Federal authorities are investigating the theft of patient information, possibly by a former Johns Hopkins Hospital employee, as part of a scheme to make fraudulent driver's licenses. The employee, who worked in the patient registration area, would have had access to information such as names, addresses, parents' names, and Social Security numbers as part of her job duties, according to a letter the hospital sent to the identity theft unit of the state attorney general's office.
