STL Co. employee causes HIPAA breach


KSDK 5 St. Louis - (Missouri) St. Louis County officials notified an unknown number of inmates at the Buzz Westfall Justice Center after learning that a former health department employee emailed a document that contained the names and Social Security numbers of some inmates who were at the justice center between 2008 and 2014, to their own personal email account. The former employee was told to delete the document and authorities do not believe any of the information was accessed beyond the worker.
