WPMT 43 York - (Pennsylvania) Pennsylvania State University's Milton S. Hershey Medical Center is notifying 1,801 patients that their health information may have been accessed after an employee entered protected health information at home on a personal device outside the secured network. An investigation determined that the employee did not misuse the information, which consisted of material related to a test ordered by the medical center's women's health or family medicine clinicians between August 2013 and March 2014.
