NZ: Burgled surgeon says patient records safe

Major problems averted. Well done, Doctor!

A New Plymouth orthopaedic surgeon whose premises were burgled after Christmas says confidential patient records were never at risk.

John Pennington, of Noradene at 85 Vivian St, said his portable hard drive was stolen but the burglars could not have accessed patient files.

The stolen hard drive and two other computers in his office were all hardware and software encrypted and had fingerprint readers on them.

“Without my fingerprint and password they can’t access them at all.”
