Former Holy Cross Hospital employee sentenced to prison for disclosing patient information
Natasha Lolita Orr, 36, of Miami, a former employee at Holy Cross Hospital, was sentenced today after previously pleading guilty to disclosing individually identifiable health information.
During the previous plea hearing, Orr admitted to stealing patient information from the Holy Cross Hospital Emergency Room during her employment at the hospital. She then sold that stolen information to co-conspirators who used the patients’ information to fraudulently obtain bank account information in the names of the patients and obtain debit cards in the patients’ names.
Orr was sentenced to 24 months in prison, including 12 months of home confinement, to be followed by 3 years of supervised release. Co defendants Jimmy Lee Theodore, 27 of Miami, Albert Andrulonis, 27 of Davie, and Mildred Conception Alexis, 42 of Miami, all pled guilty and are awaiting sentencing. Co-defendant Raushanah Bowleg, 30, of Miami, is scheduled to go trial on May 31, 2011.
