Teen faces potential ID theft after Children's employee takes medical records out of hospital
Fox 9 News, Minneapolis, MN
BIG LAKE, Minn. (KMSP) - A 15-year-old appears to be a victim of identity theft after his medical records were taken out of Children’s Hospital in St. Paul by an employee.
The boy’s mother, Sandra Brooks, is speaking out as she continues to seek answers from hospital management.
“When you go to a hospital, you don’t expect for your child’s information to walk out of that hospital,” said Brooks.
Brooks is trying everything she can to repair her teenage son's credit score and protect his future after his personal information and medical records were exposed after a surgery in June at Children's Hospital in St. Paul.
“Over the course of the summer, I was getting texts all the time—'you’re approved for a mortgage, you’re approved for this, you’re approved for that' - and I’m thinking OK something is not adding up here,” said Brooks.
