North Country Hospital laptop recovered

Posted: Updated:

North Country Hospital says the man who had a hospital laptop with more than 3,000 patient documents has given it back.

Hospital officials say the court ordered former employee Christian Cornelius to give the computer back. It is now undergoing forensic analysis. Cornelius says he was given the laptop to fix by another employee and then realized it contained sensitive patient information on it. He kept it after he was let go. The hospital alerted federal and local authorities -- including the FBI -- and is now looking at its internal policies.
