A June 11 office burglary resulted in the theft of six laptops and a tablet. One or more of the computer devices included the personal health information of current and former Home Health patients.  Information included names, Social Security numbers, addresses, dates of birth, demographics, patient medical treatment profiles, diagnoses, symptoms, medications, treatment notes, and health insurance information.  The standard laptop security controls had been temporarily suspended on the devices since they were undergoing a software upgrade.
