3 fired, 2 suspended in football player-UIHC breach

[ 17 ] February 3, 2011 |

University of Iowa officials are in the process of firing three staff members and suspending two others without pay for five days for their roles in inappropriately accessing electronic medical records of 13 UI football players who were in the hospital.

The unidentified players were being treated for rhabdomyolysis, a rare muscle disorder.

UI spokesman Tom Moore declined to identify the names of the staff members, what information they accessed or how it was used, citing federal and institutional privacy laws and policies.
