Many folders that were found in a landfill dump site were labeled "Radiology Department, Baptist Medical Center." Hundreds of medical records were out in the open, all with sensitive information. Sensitive patient information that was thrown out included names, x-rays, ultrasounds, MRIs, and Social Security numbers.  Files from at least five other facilities were found at the same site; however Baptist Medical Center is believed to be the source of the breach.

This Hollywood Video like many others has closed. Hundreds, perhaps thousands of pieces of paper, receipts, records and worst of all membership forms, were exposed.  It appears they were not even placed in the dumpster, but left out in the open and scattered everywhere by the wind. On these forms were names, addresses, birth dates, I-D numbers, credit card numbers and signatures.

Nearly two thousand students records from Chattanooga State are missing. The company hired to scan the documents, mishandled them. The school took the records to a company, United Imaging in Walker County, where the papers would be converted to computer discs. The school was contacted by individuals who said there was something awry going on at this scanning site. That's when the school found their records in disarray, and brought them back. The papers included students' names, Social Security numbers, addresses, phone numbers, some even contained high school transcripts.

Officials have seized hundreds, perhaps thousands, of files containing Social Security numbers and other private patient information found dumped outside the shuttered office of DRC Physical Therapy Plus. The manila folders, dating back to at least 1998, include information sheets showing the names, addresses and birth dates of patients and, in some cases, Social Security numbers. Deputies impounded a dump truck loaded with patient files and about a dozen or so boxes stacked inside the bucket of a front-loader.
