(Lancaster) -- A doctor's office in central Pennsylvania says an agitated patient stole a document listing personal information on more than 500 patients.
The owner of Lancaster General Medical Group reported the missing document yesterday. The practice says a patient became agitated and disruptive and took it from the office February 5th.
The document doesn't show Social Security numbers, credit card information, or addresses. But it lists patients' names, genders, dates of birth, and whether they received cancer screenings and vaccinations.
All patients named on the spreadsheet have been notified and officials say there's no evidence the information has been misused. A practice spokesman says the theft wasn't immediately announced because officials were still trying to retrieve the spreadsheet.
The patient has not been charged.
