An employee error caused sensitive patient documents to be sent to a recycling facility. Some of the documents, which should have been shredded instead of recycled, were found on December 29 after being blown out of a recycling truck.  The documents included patient names and dates of birth.  The papers that fell off the truck were shredded by Adventist and any documents that remained at the facility were destroyed there.  The employee responsible for the mistake was not fired.
