Nadya Suleman has been the subject of much curiosity since she gave birth to octuplets.


Fifteen employees were fired for improperly accessing medical records of Nadya Suleman, the mother of octuplets, a Kaiser Permanente spokesman said.

"We always provide training on the importance of patient privacy and confidentiality," said Jim Anderson, the hospital spokesman.

"We knew from the time she (Nadya Suleman) was admitted to the hospital in December, this case would attract attention. Numerous training sessions were held to remind people of the need to keep the information confidential."

Eight other employees of the Bellflower, California hospital were disciplined for accessing Suleman's files, Anderson said.

Anderson said there's no indication that any of the information was distributed outside the hospital to the media.

Do you agree that the employees should have been fired?

That’s a good thing they were let go. Too often, people take for granted employment, and what it means to be a good, moral employee. I think it’s also important for people, in general, to realize that not everything is your business. So stop the unnecessary, noseyness.

I agree with Yvonnes. EVERYONE deserves some privacy, even Nadya. Good on the hospital for holding onto the morals that they teach.
