Grady patients' medical records stolen

Craig Schneider reports:

The FBI is investigating the theft of medical records of patients at Grady Memorial Hospital, officials said Friday.

Grady spokeswoman Denise Simpson provided few details on the thefts that were discovered late Thursday. She said it remains unknown how many patient records were stolen, which patients were affected or how the records were stolen.

Grady officials do not at this point believe the records contained patients’ Social Security numbers or financial information such as credit card numbers, but Simpson emphasized that investigators are only starting their inquiry.

Simpson did not identify either the vendor or subcontractor.
