Massive Firing -- You Can't Do Dat to Brit!

3/14/2008 7:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

UCLA Medical Center is terminating at least 13 staff members and suspending at least six others for looking at the confidential medical records of Britney Spears while she was hospitalized there.

The LA Times reports that in addition to these firings, at least six doctors will face disciplinary action for snooping into her computerized records at the hospital.

According to the Times, UCLA officials admitted this wasn't the first time Spears' privacy had been compromised. Several employees were caught snooping into her records in September 2005 after she gave birth to her first son, Sean Preston, at Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center. A few of those employees were fired as well.

Spears was admitted to the hospital on January 31 -- after being placed on a "5150 hold" when it was determined she posed a danger to herself or others. She was released February 6.

He's just another Idiot    

Thanks to Papa Spears, Britney seems to be getting better. You Britney haters can't stand it, can you? You love to trash and bash her. At least she is working. Deadbeat K-Dud just sits on his lazy ass, not lifting a finger, spending her money. Why doesn't he get a job? Oh, that's right, he's too stupid to find a job. What is he --------retarded ????

And now we see why people go into hospitals and put their prescriptions in different names. If she would of been under a different name maybe so many people would not of cared to read her mdical records. I think this is terrible and even the drs. should of been fired.

The United States of America is just about gone. Greed and acoutability does not mean anything anymore. You better fight against the new gun bill, because 90 million people have them and not just one. How do you think we got where we are over 200 years ago.

Most computer systems record all access and the password of the person doing the access. Would love to see an analysis of the records accessed by all pertaining to the prosecutor in the Paris Hilton case. Just how many people knew there was a warrant out for his wife and what favors did they get to keep their mouths shut or to ignore the warrant when she should have been arrested. A review of the actual number of e-mails he got would also be good. My bet is he lied through his teeth and exagerated the number.

yeh yeh    

What information would be in an electronic record at UCLA?

Just things for insurance?

Not her thoughts, intake of food, behavior or the behavior of visitors to her room?

Medication, procedures, treatment, probably, but I don't know. Temperature? Daily input/output in ccs?

GOOD! I hope they have the right people and I agree with Stan (#7); I hope everyone responsible is prosecuted because it's a CRIME. And all you freakin' haters, go away and pick on someone whom you actually have to look in the eye. I'm a nice person, but I'm just so sick of you all acting this way.

While I think her father is doing a helluva job keeping her reeled in, I'm certain it's premature to say she's "getting better." No one will know if she is getting better until all sane, caring, adult supervision has left her home and she has to live on her own and be rsponsible for her own actions.

I find it so odd that out of the blue she got this sit-com gig. Seriously, it's like she heard Justin was producing something and she just HAD to get into the act. Perhaps a couple days on the sit-com set went a long way to feed her narcissistic personality - a substitute for the paps. I would hope I am wrong, but somehow doubt it.

Good for them! People in hospitals are vulnerable to begin with and place their trust in the hospitals employees; that trust should be sacred. Any violation should be dealt with quick and severely.

Disgusting!

These employees - including the md's - should never again be allowed to work in a situation where they have access to confidential information.

Britney absolutely should file suit against the hospital.

They probably read the rags and blogs, and were trying to see if Brit fits the pop singer with HIV blind item.

LikeYa---------Britney Jean Spears paid $279,870 in Federal taxes last year, i think that covers any Regular taxpayers need to worry about their tax money being spent unjustly. and she paid $67,567 in state and local taxes.
