Details on the Jackson South Community Hospital breach

Details have been disclosed about a breach I noted yesterday. According to NBC in Miami:

A baby born at Jackson South Community Hospital was at the center of an internal investigation into a breach of patient privacy and hospital policy – and two hospital administrators no longer work there as a result, sources said.

According to sources, the child was born on Oct. 4 and abandoned by its mother. A couple of days later the newborn was taken from the second-floor nursery to the first floor.

The hospital security band was taken off the baby, and a family looking to adopt was directly contacted by one of the employees and went to the hospital to see the baby, the sources told NBC 6 South Florida.
