Regional Medical Center in Memphis notifies 1,200 physical therapy patients after e-mail attachment error

The Regional Medical Center in Memphis (The MED) has disclosed a breach. Adam Hammond of WREG reports:

 The MED is alerting some patients who were treated at their outpatient facility that their personal information may have been accidentally sent out in one of three emails sent out by an employee.

That information includes the social security number, phone number and reasons for therapy.

This impacts almost 1200 patients who were treated here between May of 2012 and January of 2013.

Read more on WREG. There is no notice that I can find on The MED’s site, but WREG’s reporting helpfully includes a copy of their statement.
