NorthCare Hospital Medical Data Breach – Class Action Investigation
Ahdoot & Wolfson is investigating a potential class action lawsuit against Oklahoma City-based NorthCare hospital following reports that a recent breach of its systems resulted in hackers accessing patient information.
NorthCare recently confirmed suffering a data breach involving 127,883 patients’ information. The company stated that it was affected by a ransomware attack, but did not pay the ransom. The breach occurred on May 29, 2021.
Information impacted during the breach reportedly consists of: “full name, social security number, addresses, date of birth, medical diagnoses.”
NorthCare’s failure to protect sensitive patient information can expose patients to fraud and identity theft. These failures may violate consumer protection and privacy statutes.
