Patients uneasy about possible security breach at UT Medical Center

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Patients at the University of Tennessee Medical Center are reacting to the news of a possible security breach of their records.


"I don't like it," said Rose Benton, who is a recent patient. Patient Carolyn Cook agrees: "I don't like it at all. I don't like the situation at all."

On Friday, the hospital announced that 8,000 patients' medical and identity information may have been compromised.

"My social security number of course, yeah. My medical history? I don't want anybody knowing my medical history. That's my business, you know," said Cook
