Workers snooped, says University of Iowa Hospitals

Des Moines Register, November 18, 2008
University of Iowa Hospitals has fired one employee and suspended seven others after accusing them of inappropriately looking at patients' private information. The incidents were uncovered during a routine review of computer access to confidential information, officials said. "This breach of confidentiality is totally unacceptable and very disappointing," said Chief Executive Officer Ken Kates in a statement.
