Hospital Fires Emps in Facebook Scandal

R. Stickney reports:

Rumors swirled around Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside two weeks ago that some employees had been fired for sharing patient information on Facebook.

The allegations, that dozens of employees may have violated patient confidentiality by posting information on the social networking site caught the attention of the state.

The California Department of Health launched an investigation last week.

On Monday, a spokesperson for Tri-City confirmed that five employees had been fired and one employee received a lesser form of disciplinary action.

The statement does not appear to be up on Tri-City’s web site as of the time of this posting.
