Snooping in records has a history at UCLA
Though UCLA Medical Center has portrayed its recent privacy breaches as rare actions, the hospital has known since at least 1995 that staffers were peeking into the medical records of prominent patients, according to records and interviews. The California Department of Public Health has been investigating UCLA since the hospital fired 13 workers and disciplined 12 others for snooping on pop star Britney Spears. Since then, reports showed a different worker inappropriately accessed the electronic records of 61 patients.
