If you were a patient at Upstate University Hospital, your personal information may have been compromised.
The hospital has notified 283 patients by mail that a laptop computer containing some personal medical information was stolen from the hospital on or about March 30 or 31. The information on the computer may have included the patient's name, date of birth, hospital medical record number, dates of care, diagnosis, test readings and physician's name. It did not include the patient's social security number, insurance information, address or other identifying information which can frequently be used in identity theft.
Hospital officials say there is no indication the information has been found, viewed, used or misused by anyone. The investigation continues.
