More with ties to UCLA may have snooped
Los Angeles Times, May 13, 2008
California health regulators have connected 14 more people affiliated with UCLA Medical Center to the improper viewing of celebrity medical records, bringing the number of current and former workers apparently implicated in the snooping scandal to 68. Each of the employees had signed a confidentiality agreement after being hired promising to access patient information "only in the performance of assigned duties and where required or permitted by law," according to investigators. UCLA officials have appointed a committee to review privacy policies and have pledged to retrain staff and improve computer systems to increase security.
