Phoebe trashed computer still missing


An update on a missing Phoebe Putney Hospital computer that contained sensitive patient information.

Phoebe Officials say they still haven't found the computer that was mistakenly thrown in the trash in November.

More than 68-hundred patients received letters warning that their medical or personal information could be compromised.

Hospital officials have not heard from anyone claiming to be a victim of identity theft because of the computer loss.

The hospital fired two workers and say they tightened regulations to prevent something like this from happening again.
