Patient records left at Dubuque Planned Parenthood center

(AP) -

Officials say about 2,500 patients of Planned Parenthood's now-closed Dubuque center were recently notified that their health records might have been left behind when the facility closed in April.

Spokeswoman Rachel Lopez says hard copies of patient information were inadvertently left at the building and they might have been accessed by unauthorized parties after the center's closure.

The Telegraph Herald reports that the documents were found by the building's new owner May 6. Affected patients were sent letters about the records July 1.

Lopez says information from records from Aug. 1, 2008, through April 30, 2014, may have been compromised.

The organization has not received any indication that the information has been used by unauthorized parties.
