Commissioner Brian Beamish’s statement on the breach of Rob Ford’s personal health information

Mount Sinai Hospital informed us in mid-September when they confirmed the breach. Since then, we have been working with the hospital to review the steps that were taken to protect the Mayor’s health information prior to his admission, and actions taken after the breach was discovered. We will be reviewing this with the hospital to determine if additional actions are required. Based on our work with the hospital to date, we have not seen the need to open a formal investigation.
