Singin' the HIPAA Blues in Arkansas

The Associated Press reports:

The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences says a digital camera containing photos of newborn babies was apparently stolen out of a nurse’s lab coat.

UAMS says the camera had photographs of some babies born at the hospital between July and October. The photos also contained labels with the baby and mother’s names, birthdays, address, telephone number, insurance status, doctor’s name and medical record numbers.
