Schwarzenegger Calls For Stronger Privacy Of Medical Records

Catharine Paddock, PhD has an article in Medical News Today about the recent revelations of privacy breaches at UCLA and how Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is calling for stronger protections.  Schwarzenegger himself has been in the situation of celebrity patient and reports that his privacy was invaded, too.  What he describes, however, is more than just employee “snooping.”  Paddock writes:

The Governor told the Times that every time he left the operating room he was told that people were going through his file. They “had white coats on”, he said, and they had snuck into the hospital, “They had nothing to do with the hospital staff at all,” he told the paper.
