The USB stick containing information on over 4,000 past and current Stanton Hospital patients was found just under a month ago.

Department of Health and Social Services spokesperson Damien Healy confirmed the stick was found Dec. 8 on hospital property. He said the department alerted MLAs and followed up with the affected patients, but did not issue a press release. Healy declined to give a reason for the decision.

Stanton Hospital announced a doctor had lost the stick Nov. 27, two weeks after the doctor reported it missing.
