Thousands of patient records were found in an unsecured trash can.  They contained names, Social Security numbers, addresses, phone numbers, medical conditions, and treatment information.  The boxes of medical records were traced to Ayuda, whose owner claimed to have been doing little or no business after losing a state contract in September.  The boxes were auctioned off after the owner failed to pay the rental fee on a storage unit.
