WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority is apologizing just days after another security breach.

A home-care worker’s bag with information for 25 patients was stolen from her vehicle in Point Douglas on January 17.

The WRHA apologized earlier this week after another bag with important heath information for 67 patients was taken from a nurse’s car on January 14.
