Norton PD warns of hospital scam

The Norton Police Department has a warning about a calling scam that could be impacting hospital patients.

Police say callers are identifying themselves as representatives of Norton County Hospital and asking for information like name, date of birth and social security number before presenting a survey about the patient's experience at the hospital.

The hospital says it will not call or ask for personal details like this over the phone.

If you're suspicious of a call, don't provide any personal information and just hang up - then contact police.
