Hospital: 15 fired for looking at octuplet mom’s file

From CNN.com:

Fifteen employees were fired for improperly accessing medical records of Nadya Suleman, the mother of octuplets, a Kaiser Permanente spokesman said Monday.

“We always provide training on the importance of patient privacy and confidentiality,” said Jim Anderson, the hospital spokesman.

“We knew from the time she (Nadya Suleman) was admitted to the hospital in December, this case would attract attention.

“Numerous training sessions were held to remind people of the need to keep the information confidential.”

Eight other employees of the Bellflower, California hospital were disciplined for accessing Suleman’s files, Anderson said.
