Northwestern Hospital Workers Fired For Improperly Reviewing Jussie Smollett’s Records
Workers at Northwestern Memorial Hospital have apparently been fired for improperly reviewing the medical records of Jussie Smollett, who was helped at the emergency room following his alleged attack.
CBS Chicago reports that sources state that many of the staff have been terminated after gaining access to the “Empire” actor’s medical chart. The actor has since been charged for faking the attack.
One nurse says that she was fired for allegedly looking at his medical chart and says she believes other nurses and staffers were also fired for the same reason. She denies the claims and says it was a big misunderstanding as she simply scrolled passed his chart while examining another patient’s chart.
When CBS 2 reached out to Northwestern Memorial Hospital for a statement, they said that company policy prevents them from commenting on the employment status of any employees.
As we reported, Jussie was admitted on January 29 after falling victim to a hate crime. Since police have uncovered evidence suggesting that he staged the entire attack.
