TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - More than 1,000 patients’ information has been compromised after a Tucson doctor’s logbook was stolen from her car.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/1TSXmsR ) that the affected patients who visited Carondelet St. Mary’s and Carondelet St. Joseph’s emergency rooms have been notified of the break of confidentiality and offered a year of free credit monitoring.

The logbook was stolen in March and detailed information about patients who visited the facilities between Oct. 14, 2015 and March 25. The logbook had patients’ names, dates of birth, ages and genders, date of hospital visit, hospital medical record number, a hospital number identifying the visit, and in some cases, a short description of the patient’s medical issue.
