15 fired for accessing octuplet mom's medical file

BELLFLOWER, Calif. - Fifteen hospital workers have been fired for looking at medical records of octuplet mother Nadya Suleman without permission.

Kaiser Permanente spokesman Jim Anderson said Monday the violations of health care privacylaws were reported to the state Department of Public Health.

He says another eight employees were disciplined for accessing the files at Kaiser's hospital inBellflower, where Suleman gave birth to the octuplets on Jan. 26.

Hospital officials say they do not think any information was shared with the media.

Suleman's attorney says she doesn't plan to sue the hospital for the breach of privacy.

Two of the eight infants remain in the neonatal intensive care unit.
