Employees at Florida Hospital - Celebration were recently sentenced to jail time
for stealing patient data relating to patients who were in car wrecks and selling it to chiropractors and plaintiff's attorneys. The thefts occurred between 2009 and 2011, and obviously the hospital didn't know the employees were doing it. However, now the hospital has been sued in a class action suit
, based on breach of contract (not providing patients with the security they expected). Proving damages might be an issue, of course.
