Mayo employee sentenced for stealing patient info 16 May 12

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A former Mayo Clinic employee will serve three years of probation for stealing patient information from the health care organization.

A federal judge Tuesday also ordered Autumn Wright to serve 300 hours of community service. The 34-year-old Rochester woman earlier pleaded guilty to one count of wrongfully obtaining health information.

Wright admitted to sharing a patient’s medical history with another person. The Post-Bulletin  says court records do not describe Wright’s duties at Mayo.
