Hospital: 2 employees stole patient data

Sept. 8, 2012 at 1:14 PM   |   Comments

MIAMI, Sept. 8 (UPI) -- Two University of Miami Hospital employees have admitted stealing registration sheets that include patient data, the hospital says.

Officials said Friday the workers were fired after Miami-Dade police notified the hospital of the potential problem, The Miami Herald reported.

The two admitted taking what are known as "face sheets" that include names, addresses, insurance policy numbers and the last four digits of Social Security numbers.

Some insurance programs, including Medicare and Medicaid, use Social Security numbers as their policy numbers.

Miami-Dade police would not comment on the investigation.
