AU: Medical records scattered on Sydney street

From ABC News:

New South Wales Police have confirmed that several boxes of sensitive documents containing records from a private nursing home were found on a street in inner Sydney.

Police say the boxes of papers were located by a council clean-up crew but a Sydney taxi driver says he stopped to inspect the documents after noticing many of them strewn across the footpath outside the Moran Health Care Group building.

Taxi driver Ian says he saw at least 10 boxes of papers outside the Moran Health Care Group in Bridge Street with some loose documents strewn along the street.

Ian says the boxes contained very private information, including staff bank account details from hospitals or nursing homes in New South Wales and Western Australia.
