FL: Hospital Worker Stole Identity

A Central Florida hospital worker was arrested Friday on suspicion of using medical records to steal a patient’s identity.

Joan Allison Thompson, 30, of Rockledge, faces four counts of criminal use of personal identification, two counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, four counts of uttering a forged instrument and one count of scheme to defraud.

Thompson, who works in a position of medical registration at Wuesthoff Hospital in Rockledge, used the victim’s name, date of birth and Social Security number from medical records and applied, received and used a Capital One credit card, police said.

Thompson was fired on Friday.

Investigators said there may be other victims.
