Type of breach: 

A computer system error caused sensitive information to be exposed.  The breach occurred sometime between August 19, 2011 and September 20, 2011.

UPDATE (11/28/2012): It appears that the breach was related to a terminated employee who could still access Sierra Plastic Surgery's network after leaving the company.  The former employee accessed Social Security numbers, personal contact information, payment information, and other sensitive information in less than 50 instances.  It also appears that some copies of patient surgery estimates were printed and subsequently surrendered by the former employee when the breach was discovered in August of 2012.  The former employee was seeking information on compensation owed.
