University Hospital Limerick writing to 630 patients after alleged major data breach which saw information posted on Twitter

David Raleigh reports:

University Hospital Limerick (UHL) is in the process of sending letters to over 600 patients following an alleged major data breach concerning patient data, including details of 95 children, which was then posted on social media.

Gardaí have also been informed of the alleged breach by a non-HSE employee.

It’s alleged the patient data, including the patients’ name, date of birth, as well as medicines dispensed, was extracted from a computer system relating to patients who attended at the Emergency Department at UHL last April.
