Northeast Rehabilitation Hospital patient data stolen

On April 8, Northeast Rehabilitation Hospital in Salem, New Hampshire notified (pdf) the New Hampshire Attorney General that paper and electronic records with personal and medical information on 8 patients was stolen from an employee’s vehicle on March 20. The hospital provides services to patients in homes and schools, and the laptop and document were stolen from the Fisk School parking lot. The stolen laptop was double password-protected and requires PTCT to read.

The patient whose details were in the paper document was notified verbally and in writing and provided payment to cover the cost of purchasing credit monitoring for one year. The seven patients whose data were on the laptop were advised how to contact credit agencies to monitor their credit information.
