Kaiser hospital fined $250,000 for privacy breach in octuplet case

Los Angeles Times, May 15, 2009

California health regulators fined Kaiser Permanente's Bellflower hospital $250,000 for failing to keep employees from snooping in the medical records of Nadya Suleman, the mother who set off a media frenzy after giving birth to octuplets in January. The fine is the first monetary penalty imposed and largest allowed under a new state law enacted last year after widely publicized violations of privacy at UCLA Medical Center involving Farrah Fawcett, Britney Spears, Maria Shriver, and other celebrities.
