An employee at Loma Linda (Calif.) University Medical Center taking home work related information has resulted in the notification of 1,336 patients of a possible breach of their protected health information.

The information included names, dates of birth, addresses, medical record and driver’s license numbers, and some Social Security numbers, according to the university. All original documentation has been recovered; the university fired the employee responsible, it says.

The university has contracted with TransUnion to provide breach management services and offer credit monitoring services to affected patients.
