Georgia Hospital announced that 6,777 patients’ personal information may have been exposed when an unencrypted desktop was mistakenly discarded. The computer contained the names, addresses, birthdates, dates of service, physicians’ names, and possibly the medical diagnoses of 6,777 people who were treated at PPMH between May 2010 and October 2013. A hospital employee rearranging her office boxed up her computer and left it outside her office. The box was then thrown away by a custodial worker who believed it was trash. Both the custodial worker and hospital staffer were fired following the incident.
