Recently Kim Kardashian gave birth a Baby on June 15 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre and according to a news at LA Times, six people fired from the hospital because of hacking into several people’s medical records—including Kim’s!
Medical Centre released a statement in which they stated that 14 Patient records were “inappropriately accessed” between the dates of June 18 and June 24, and six people have apparently been fired because of the incident. “Four were employees of community physicians who have medical staff privileges at the hospital, one was a medical assistant employed by Cedars-Sinai, and one was an unpaid student research assistant,”
Medical Centre spokeswoman didn’t say about who exactly was affected by the security breach but all the victims had been notified that their records had been breached.
Representatives of Kardashian and West did not respond to requests for comment Friday.
Breaches of patient records — particularly celebrity records — have been a recurring problem for Los Angeles hospitals. UCLA Health System found itself at the center of a scandal in 2008 involving workers who snooped into the medical records of Britney Spears, Farah Fawcett and Maria Shriver, among others. One former employee was convicted of selling celebrity medical information to theNational Enquirer. UCLA agreed to pay $865,500 as part of a settlement with federal regulators.
