Six Fired for Snooping at L.A. Hospital

Six people have been fired Los Angeles’s Cedars-Sinai Hospital for inappropriately accessing medical files between June 18 and 24—the days following the birth of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s daughter, North—the hospital said on Friday. The hospital declined to name the patients whose records were accessed, but said the patients affected had been informed. Representatives from Kardashian and West have not yet responded, although TMZ reports Kardashian was informed of the security breach. Five workers accessed a single patient’s record, while the other accessed 14.
