North Shore-LIJ Patient Information Stolen

Patient information, including names, insurance coverage, and Social Security numbers, have been stolen at North Shore-LIJ University Hospital on Long Island in what has been described as two separate infiltrations of patient records.

From WABC Eyewitness News :

"It's hard to imagine that your privacy inside a hospital could be as vulnerable as your health, but Eyewitness News obtained a letter that North Shore University Hospital on Long Island has sent to patients, notifying them that confidential information on the computer network was stolen in an attempt to open up credit cards in the person's name."
