Records Breached: 

2,600 (No SSNs or financial information reported)

Paper tracking records of tissue issued in orthopaedic surgeries performed at HJD in 2009 and 2010 were mistakenly discarded on or around June 23.  It appears that the papers were then compacted and buried in a landfill rather than properly disposed.  Patients who were affected had their name, date of birth, gender, hospital, date of surgery, and clinical surgery information exposed.
