California hospital where Octomom gave birth faces 250K dollar fine for file leak

By Super Admin

New York, May 16 (ANI): The southern California hospital that played host to Nadya Suleman while she delivered her eight babies earlier this year has been slapped with a 250,000-dollar fine for failing to keep her medical records away from nosy employees.

Kaiser Permanente sacked 15 workers and disciplined eight more in March for prying into the file of the mother of octuplets.

The hospital in Bellflower was said to have self-reported the violations to the state and landed the fine.

"Californians should never have to worry that their private medical information will be improperly shared," the New York Daily News quoted Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as saying.

"This fine should be a reminder that there are consequences for violations of medical privacy," he added.

Nadya, the 33-year-old single, unemployed mum, had come under fire for delivering the eight babies, through in-vitro fertilization, after already having 6 previous kids, ages 2 to 7. (ANI)
