More than 200 people affected by privacy breaches at Nova Scotia Health

Jack Julian reports:

Another privacy breach at Nova Scotia Health has affected more than 200 people.

In a release Tuesday, the province’s health authority said they are contacting 211 people by letter whose personal health information was “inappropriately accessed” in two unrelated incidents.

The breaches took place at the Aberdeen Hospital in New Glasgow, and the Valley Regional Hospital in Kentville. They were flagged by a routine privacy audit which triggered two internal investigations.
