Kim Kardashian

I Was a Victim

of Hospital Snooping

7/13/2013 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0713-cedars-sanai-medical-kim-kardashianKim Kardashian had her records "improperly accessed" by employees of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center who were subsequently fired for doing so ... TMZ has learned. 

A report in the LA Times today said that six people were fired for privacy breaches involving the medical records of 14 patients from June 18-24. KK delivered her daughter on June 15 and checked out about a week later.

TMZ has learned that Kim was contacted by the hospital to let her know she was one of the patients who had her records accessed.

Our sources say the family suspected that information was leaking from the hospital after various media reports surfaced with certain information about the birth of her daughter North that she hadn't told anyone.

We're told Kim was glad the hospital contacted her and is happy that action was taken against the workers.

There is a bit of a disconnect here, since Harvey pays people just like the hospital employees, for his information!

They have to put a new system in place as this one is clearly not working, I agree that the hospital employees who sell this info should be fired and blackballed from ever being employed in the health industry. (Whether or not it is the Kardashian family or Joe schmo ) I believe it should be a felony to breach such a contract and they should do jail time. That'll teach em. And end this BS!

So she's still popular because she hung out with Paris Hilton, right? And she made a porno tape that nobody bought, right? And TMZ considers it the best porno tape ever, right? Which is a joke, because we're so afraid to say Kim's fat, right? God forbid!
I feel so bad for that kid, in 5 or 10 years, when Mommy still thinks people care, Daddy's not around anymore, he just mails a check every month. I mean, the Kardashians don't even DO anything. It's not like they're playing to sold out arenas every night, and soon they'll have to play dinner clubs and private parties. TMZ declares that Kim has an Internet empire. (???) She's got a cheap shoe website. And chicks love CHEAP SHOES. Oh my God! She's like a genius, kinda, almost.

How we doing on the Lindsay Lohan rehab front, folks? Haven't heard nothing in a few days. Has the comeback started yet? Are "friends of Lindsay" saying she's really focused THIS TIME?

LMAO. How many informants does TMZ have at Cedars? While the appropriate action was taken regarding the privacy of medical records, the information is out there anyway, and will, over time, come out in dribs and drabs which TMZ will, having paid for the information disclose in a way which holds them harmless.

PS - Kim deserves privacy but she also goes out of her way to lie about things that don't matter. She lies pathologically---so the truth about why this baby was born 5 weeks early and why she is in hiding WILL come out. It is all a big set up

Don't like KK but when you're phuckin with HIPAA/medical records you're done for. Nobody wants that kind of personal info out regardless of who they are. Some isht you just don't cross.

They violated HIPAA and firing was inevitable. I find it hard to believe that Kim doesn't want ANYTHING made public. I'm surprised she didn't have a camera mounted on both stirrups.

Oh boo hoo. KK is the last person I'd have sympathy for for invasion of privacy. After what she's done for money & fame, there's nothing we'd find out about her that would surprise us.
