Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is investigating Consulate Health Care (“CHC”) for failing to safeguard sensitive patient information, resulting in a data leak carried out by the Hive ransomware gang in early December 2022 that impacted CHC’s current and former employees and patients. Hive has already leaked some of what appears to be the Social Security numbers, emails, addresses, phone numbers, photos, medical records, credit cards, emails, and insurance information of the impacted individuals.
Although medical centers like CHC usually notify patients that their information was affected, such notifications can sometimes delay, leaving sensitive information exposed without patients’ knowledge. In previous data breaches, victims of data theft had had their information posted on the dark web or viewed by hackers with little information about who accessed or viewed it. Victims of these types of data attacks may be forced to spend money out of pocket for credit monitoring or fraudulent charges to bank and hospital accounts. Some patients affected by data breaches may have noticed suspicious credit card charges, requests for services or loans in a patient’s name, medical procedures ordered without patient consent, and/ or disrupted medical care.
