Sharp Reports Theft Of Information On 757 Patients
The San Diego Police Department and Sharp HealthCare are investigating the theft of 757 health screening records taken from a locked cabinet inside the Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion on Feb. 6. According to a statement released by Sharp Friday afternoon, someone took a computer and “external memory device” that contained records collected during wellness screenings for blood pressure and/or cardiac health studies Sharp is conducting. The records included the name, date of birth, age, current medications, family history and screening type for each patient. No financial information or social security numbers were part of the breach. (Sisson, 3/3)
