Patient dietician treatment cards were discovered missing.  The cards contained patient names, dates of birth, phone numbers, medical record numbers, treatment plans, progress notes, medications, diagnoses, procedures, heights, weights, visit dates, and other diagnostic findings.  Tuba City Regional suspects that the cards were misplaced during a relocation and inadvertently destroyed in the facility's trash compactor.  The approximate date of the disappearance was not reported; but the discovery was made on or around April 1, 2011.
