FBI Investigating Former Hospital Employees
DATA LOSS—U.S.October 20, 2011
The FBI is investigating a breach of patient records at Florida Hospital, WESH 2 News reports. Three employees have been fired for improperly accessing private information on more than 2,000 patients, the report states. The three have not been charged, but they are suspected of selling the information of patients from Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. "There are so many hospitals and a number of possible victims out there," Osceola County Sheriff's Office Spokeswoman Twis Lizasuain said. "That's why the FBI was brought in to this." One of the suspects allegedly accessed and sold an "extreme" amount of data.
