Omnicell is intrusted with patient information. This paper states "on the night of November 14th, 2012 an omnicell electronic device was stolen from an employees locked car. It was reported the following day. The information that was available for the theif was: My Name, Birthdate, Patient Number, Medical Record, Gender, Allergies?, Admission Date, Discharge date, Patient type, Rm #, Medication name, medication dose amount and rate, administration instructions, and start and stop time. This is scarey. Im worried sick for my safety and my identity. I would like to sue Sentara and/or Omnicell for their careless mistake that cost all of us patients our privacy and wellbeing. Please, do I have a case?
