John Zaremba reports:

St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center is scrambling to figure out how files containing patient information wound up on the ground outside a Charlestown office complex, miles from the hospital’s Brighton campus.

An employee of Roadrunner Moving and Storage found the paperwork Friday outside the company’s Terminal Drive offices, near the landmark Schrafft center, company owner David Mareira said.

Update: There was no medical information in the file but there were some patient financial data.
