Kaiser fires staffers who snooped into octuplet mother's files
Nearly two dozen hospital employees have been fired or disciplined for snooping into the medical records of octuplet mother Nadya Suleman, according to Kaiser Permanete officials. The computer breaches at the hospital were discovered about 10 days ago and reported to state authorities and to Suleman, said Kaiser spokesman Jim Anderson. He said that 15 employees were fired and eight were disciplined. The employees "ran the gamut of medical staff," he said.
