Medical files were found in a dumpster. It seems a third party moving company was hired to transfer the boxes from one warehouse to another. It is unknown at this time how the files ended up in the dumpster. The information in the files contained Social Security numbers, driver's license copies, medical histories, and employers.


UPDATE (5/24/10): Prompt Med agreed to pay a $50,000 fine to the state of North Carolina.
