CHICAGO (CBS) — A security breach at Northwestern Memorial.
The hospital said a temp worker got access to patient records they were not allowed to see. The hospital has banned that temp worker.
The person looked up medical records for more than a month. But there was no access to insurance information or Social Security numbers.
Northwestern said there’s no evidence of fraud, but patients should double check any bills they get.
