RICHMOND HEIGHTS (KMOV.com) -

A woman is accused of using someone else's personal information so she could be treated at SSM St. Mary's Medical Center in Richmond Heights.

A woman told police a stranger stole her information for five day hospital stay in March. The hospital did not provide News 4 with many details on what took place.

SSM Health Care sent News 4 a statement:

“If it is discovered that we have been given inaccurate patient identification, we have processes in place to notify those involved.”

St. Mary's website said the onus is on patients to provide correct information.

“Patients have the responsibility to provide correct and complete information about themselves.”

It is unclear what type of the alleged suspect received.

News 4 submitted a Freedom of Information Act request to Richmond Heights police, but the department said it would not comment because the investigation is ongoing.
