More pharmacy chains report HIPAA breaches linked to looting during protests

First it was Walmart disclosing that their pharmacies in stores in California and Chicago had suffered damage and theft by looters of medications ready for pickup with patient information on labels.

Then it was CVS, who notified HHS that more than 21,000 patients’ information may have been compromised by looters who stole or accessed prescriptions ready for pickup.

Now it’s Walgreens who is notifying an as-yet-undisclosed number of patients at multiple stores across multiple states.
