An unencrypted thumb drive was lost on May 7 and discovered missing on May 8.  It contained the names, account numbers, diagnoses, dates of admission and discharge, physician's name, account numbers, and medical record numbers of patients.  It is unclear if only one Saint Mary Medical Center in California was affected, and if so, which one.  The incident was posted on the HHS website on June 8.
