A cabinet full of documents with sensitive information was found sitting on the side of the road. A woman made the discovery about a month ago and gave the documents to investigators with Aetna Insurance Co. The woman said she saw a bureau on the side of the road in front of Admiral Storage in South Windsor with a sign that said "free." She brought it home and discovered the documents. There were eight bags of nothing but Social Security numbers, names, and death benefits. Information also included patient records and medications.

Over two thousand patient records, surgery information, Social Security numbers and bank information were found dumped behind Nashville Center Point Church of the Nazarene. The documents came from the now defunct and bankrupt Nursing Visioned Medical Services group. Maryland-based Impulse Monitoring, Inc. bought the assets to NVMS last year when they filed bankruptcy. They said they are not responsible for the patient information because the services NVMS provided were one-time services.
