Fired after NFL player’s medical chart leaked to ESPN, worker sues

There’s an update to the case involving the breach of Jason Pierre-Paul’s medical information.

Daniel Chang reports:

A secretary fired from Jackson Health System on grounds she breached the privacy of New York Giants’ player Jason Pierre-Paul’s medical records has sued Miami-Dade’s public hospital network, denying she accessed the private information and saying her former employer defamed and libeled her.

[…]

In a recent response to the suit, however, Jackson Health stood by its firing of the secretary and a second employee, Immacula Richmond, a clinical staff nurse in the operating room, for inappropriately accessing Pierre-Paul’s health record in violation of federal patient privacy laws. Richmond is not a party to the lawsuit.

And then tell me how/why a secretary had access to that information at all?
