— A new audit released Monday said dozens of employees at UNC Hospitals had bad social security numbers.

Auditors found 24 employees with invalid numbers. Of those, three employees were using numbers belonging to dead people.

Four employees had social security numbers that were never issued. Thirteen of the employees had real social security numbers, but their names did not match.

In response, hospital leaders agreed to recommendations to do a better job of checking social security numbers.
