Electronic patient records "are safe"
The hospital chief executive also confirmed she didn't know where the data was stored.
Health and Social Services have moved quickly to reassure islanders that the information is safe and secure.
When questioned about the location of computer servers, Health Minister Deputy Anne Pryke said: "I'm not computer literate, well not that brilliant, so that's a question I'll go back and ask them and find out exactly where they're kept. I do know they're kept very securely because we take all patients records, they are very confidential."
And that lack of knowledge has raised eyebrows at the government's health watchdog.
The chairman of the Health Scutiny (Scutiny? Would that be "Scrutiny" morons?) committee Deputy Kristina Moore said: "We are rather perplexed as to why they don't know where this information is being held now that they are moving to server-based patient details."
There's no evidence of data breaches or a lack of security, and after this lack of knowledge was exposed, Health officials moved quickly to confirm the information's kept at a secret location on island and definitely not overseas.
But it does highlight, in a digital age, that the security of confidential patient information is a sensitive and important issue.
