Did no one learn from the mess at UCLA's Medical Center over Farrah Fawcett and other celebrities? 23 people have been caught taking a peek at OctoMom Nadya Suleman's medical records without permission. "Despite the notoriety of this case, to us this person is a patient who deserves the privacy that all our patients get," a spokesman for the Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center. Health care privacy laws disallow access to records unless you have a medical purpose. Of the employees caught peeking, fifteen were fired.
