Remember when a bunch of people at UCLA Medical Center snuck a peak at Brittany Spears’ electronic medical records? No? I didn’t either. Well they did. As reported by California Healthline:
The Department of Public Health said 53 employees, including 14 doctors, at UCLA Medical Center breached Spears’ records on two occasions.
They were disciplined or fired, right?
None of the physicians quit or were fired.
What what what? None of the physicians? Then the nonphysicians must have skated by too, right? Nope.
18 [nonphysician] employees resigned, retired or were dismissed after the violations were discovered, according to UCLA data.
I’m guessing this is why:
In the past, UCLA has said physicians are overseen by a group of their peers, while other employees report to the human resources department.
Lovely. Here’s the source.
