Patient Files Left Abandoned at Old Lakeshore Mental Health Institute Facility

May 29, 2013

An ex-employee of the Lakeshore Mental Health Institute was walking past her old place of employment which closed in June of 2012 and noticed paperwork with sensitive information readily available and easily accessible. This paperwork was left in the abandoned location with the door wide open. It is unsure if the paperwork had been left there since the closure or if it had been placed there after the fact.

Anyone who may have been admitted or connected with the Lakeshore Mental Health Institute are encouraged to consider credit monitoring services to protect financial and personal accounts that may be accessed with the information. Individuals dating back to 1995 are at risk.
