Possible HIPAA violation?
According to this article
in the Chicago Tribune (free registration required), a nurse has been arrested for burglarizing houses of patients at his hospital. He befriended the patients, then broke into their houses. Almost certainly a HIPAA violation, since he "used" the patients' PHI to determine that they wouldn't be home when he got there. Nice.
