UT Southwestern warns patients that hospital worker stole records

The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center is advising 12,000 patients to guard against fraud after a former employee was found in possession of a limited amount of patient billing data.

Authorities discovered in September that a cashier in the hospital's finance department, Tracy Renay Thomas of Dallas, had billing and insurance information from 21 patients. The hospital alerted those patients by phone.
