Hospital staff fired for peeks at Nadya Suleman's files
Great, not only is she draining the California tax coffers, she's getting nosy people fired.
"We always provide training on the importance of patient privacy and confidentiality," hospital rep Jim Anderson told Us Weekly. "We knew from the time she 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 at the hospital in Bellflower, Calif., also were disciplined.
While there's no reason to believe that any information was leaked to the media (oh,yeah, right ...), Anderson says to LA Now, "this was human nature and curiosity that got the best of people."
Of course, we can all agree that it was wrong of these people to look at a patient's private files. Wrong, wrong, wrong.
But would you have been able to resist peeking at Nadya Suleman's health records?
C'mon. Tell the truth.
Suleman, 33, now has six of her eight babies at home in La Habra, Calif. Baby No. 7 is due home soon, but baby 8 may remain in the hospital until he's healthier.
Maybe we better check the records to make sure about that. ...
