Hospital Bosses Fined For Alleged Jackson Files Breach
Health officials in California have fined bosses at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center $95,000 (£63,300) for allowing staff to peruse the medical records of a patient believed to be Michael Jackson.
The state regulators have identified the person whose files were breached as "a deceased patient" but a source close to the case tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper the patient is the late King of Pop.
The Jackson family's legal team had previously been informed by UCLA officials that the singer's medical files had been improperly accessed after his death last summer (Jun09).
Two hospital employees and two contract workers were fired for accessing the patient's information, UCLA officials have confirmed.
