HEALTHCARE PRIVACY—U.S.September 28, 2011
A Colorado nurse is facing five counts of identity theft and 46 counts of theft of medical records, Boulder Daily Camera reports. Cannon Lamar Tubb worked at numerous hospitals in the Denver metro area between May 2010 and January 2011 and, during that time, accessed 85 confidential patient and staff records, a 2010 audit revealed. He allegedly used some patients' financial information to open credit card accounts and make purchases. Letters were sent to patients under Tubb's care and to those whose medical records were breached.
