More UCLA records abuses

Los Angeles Times, April 7, 2008
A UCLA Medical Center worker who sneaked into the confidential medical records of actress Farrah Fawcett also improperly viewed the electronic files of 32 other celebrities, politicians and high-profile patients. The breaches expose UCLA to sanctions by the state of California, and and are a major embarrassment for one of the nation's preeminent medical centers. The UCLA employee allegedly looked up information on noncelebrity patients as well.
