A concerned citizen found a box of sensitive medical documents in a dumpster and contacted a local news team.  The box contained hundreds of documents that included copies of driver's licenses, prescriptions, signatures, and other patient information.  The box was removed by Indiana University Medical Group before investigators arrived.  Indiana University Medical Group claimed that the information was accidentally discarded rather than shredded. The documents were properly disposed after being collected.
