Ca: Information breach at Royal Inland Hospital as binder with patient data goes missing
Dale Bass reports:
John Ranta isn’t happy about a privacy breach at Royal Inland Hospital.
The mayor of Cache Creek and former chair of the Thompson-Nicola Hospital District board said he was given a copy of a letter sent to one of the people in his community from RIH, advising that a binder with patient information went missing from the hospital.
The binder included names, addresses, phone numbers, ages, dates of birth, personal health-care numbers, family physicians, medication histories and information from colon scans.
