An April 12, 2012 office burglary resulted in the theft of a laptop with sensitive information. The computer assigned to the receptionist was stolen and contained a spreadsheet with client name, client status (active, discharged, etc.), internal client identification number, date of birth, and assigned staff person.  However the document was not labeled as a D.A.P. document. If someone saw the spreadsheet by itself they would not know it was linked to D.A.P.

UPDATE (05/30/2013): Approximately 4,400 patients were affected.
