Everyone wants the scoop on Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s baby girl, North West, but some people like to take shit to the next level and totally violate someone’s privacy to get the information they want. This is exactly what happened at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where six employees and one student research assistant have been fired for “inappropriately accessing” Kim’s confidential hospital records.
From The Los Angeles Times:
Cedars-Sinai officials said in a statement that 14 patient records were “inappropriately accessed” between June 18 and June 24. Six people were fired over the breach: 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.
Reality television star Kim Kardashian gave birth to her daughter with rapper Kanye West at the hospital on June 15. A hospital spokeswoman declined to identify the patients whose records were accessed but said that all patients involved had been notified of the breach.
Five of the workers accessed a single patient record; the other one looked at 14. The people involved will be permanently denied access to Cedars-Sinai records even if they go on to work for other health providers, the hospital said.
Well, that’s lovely. What information did these idiots think they stood to learn and what did they plan to even do with the information? Did they think they were going to call up TMZ and demand $5,000 for letting them know that Kim asked for an extra carton of orange juice with her breakfast? I mean, come on. People need to seriously get a life.
