Rich Shapiro and John Annese report:

An emergency room worker at Kings County Hospital stole the private information of nearly 100 patients and sold it through an encrypted app on his cell phone, the Daily News has learned.

Orlando Jemmott, 52, who worked at the city-run Brooklyn hospital for more than a decade, also fed more names and phone numbers to a buyer in Pennsylvania between December 2014 and April 2015, according to court documents.
