PORTLAND — Oregon Health and Science University is notifying more than
4,000 patients that some of their personal information was in a
surgeon's laptop computer that was stolen during a Hawaii vacation.

The Oregonian reports that an initial check showed the Social Security
numbers of nine people were breached, but that figure has since grown
to 17. OHSU says those people will be offered free identity theft
monitoring.

For the remaining people, the information breached includes their
name, age, type of surgery and other limited information.

OHSU privacy officer Ronald Marcum says the hospital believes that
most of the affected patients face little risk of ID theft.
