Richard Craver reports:

Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center has told the state Attorney General’s office that 357 individuals have been affected by a security breach involving missing documents, some of which contained Social Security and medical-records numbers.

On June 1, a statement from the center said it fired an employee, Linda Bowden Turner, who had taken medical records and documents dating from 1995 to 2006 to a home she owns at 1721 Swing Drive in Winston-Salem and other sites under her control.

The attorney general’s office released the Wake Forest Baptist report today.
