Liz Austin Peterson of the Houston Chronicle reports:
Confidential medical information for about 1,200 Harris County Hospital District patients may have been compromised when an electronic device used to store the data was lost or stolen, district officials said Wednesday.
An employee transferred the information onto the device in order to complete a project away from the office and now cannot find it, hospital district spokesman Bryan McLeod said in a brief written statement.
