There are things that you just don’t mess with. And someone’s medical record certainly falls into that category. However, hospital staffers at Palisades Medical Center are getting suspended for going through George Clooney’s personal file.
On September 21st, the Ocean’s Thirteen actor and his girlfriend, Sarah Larson, were involved in an unfortunate motorcycle accident. They were taken to Palisades to be treated for minor injuries.
However, the medical facility has reportedly suspended 40 staffers without pay, including doctors, nurses and orderlies, for taking a gander at Clooney’s medical record and possibly furnishing the information to the media.
Thankfully George, himself, didn’t seem too broken up about the whole ordeal. He told press, “This is the first I’ve heard of it. And while I very much believe in a patient’s right to privacy, I would hope that this could be settled without suspending medical workers.”
