RALEIGH, N.C. - The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services apologized for accidentally posting personal information of more than 1,300 medical and mental patients on a public website.
The information was from patients receiving payments from state hospitals, which is required by law to be kept confidential.
The records were posted to N.C. Openbook, a website launched in 2009 to provide transparency for payments made to government vendors and contractors.
That information included:
• Payment dates
• Dollar amounts
