An internal error led to patient data mismanagement at John Muir Health Walnut Creek Medical Center (California).

According to a data breach notice the hospital filed with the California attorney general, an employee from John Muir Health Walnut Creek Medical created a website that linked to an Excel file containing sensitive patient information.

The hospital said between July 1, 2021, and Sept. 27, 2022, patient information may have been accessed by unauthorized users.
