to patient privacy breach response we provided.
• Of the three employees who had their employment terminated with
WDHB, how many patients for each staff member were they accused of
accessing illegitimately and was it ascertained that for some or all of the
illegitimate access instances that the staff member were somehow
connected (friend, family, colleague etc) with the patient?
Of the three:
1. Accessed the records of one individual known to them
