Who was involved? When was it discovered? Stop the incident – if a smartphone is lost take the steps to disable the access, if a breach is found take the steps to prevent further access, etc. Document the incident – fill in all the details of what occurred from step 1 (define the incident) and step 2 (steps taken to stop the incident). Clearly document all aspects of the incident.

Individual patients and Health and Human Services (HHS) will need to be notified. In addition, local media may need to be notified as well.
