Update: Hospital Aware of Breaches Months Before Stopped

Childens' privacy breaches by an insider may have gone on longer than initially reported. It now seems that although the hospital knew there had been snooping by an employee for fourteen months it may have gone on for twenty months.

Why was the worker allowed to continue snooping through private records for months after the hospital became aware of the breach? The hospital said they “did take action” in the case, such as conducting additional audits that found more breaches.

" new figures suggest the [breaches of childrens' privacy] continued for much longer — 20 months — from January 2013 to August 2014."
