Undercover Angel: Justice in UCLA patient privacy case years after Farrah sets up sting


From a report today in the Los Angeles Times:
UCLA Health System has agreed to pay $865,500 as part of a settlement with federal regulators Wednesday after two celebrity patients alleged hospital employees broke the law and reviewed their medical records without authorization.

Federal and hospital officials declined to identify the celebrities involved. The complaints cover 2005 to 2009, a time during which hospital employees were repeatedly caught and fired for peeping at the medical records of dozens of celebrities, including Britney Spears, Farrah Fawcett and former California First Lady Maria Shriver.

The security breaches were first reported in The Times in 2008.
Farrah described her sting in an interview with Times reporter Charles Ornstein -- her only media interview following her cancer diagnosis in 2006.
