University Medical Center in Tucson fired 4 personnel
for improperly accessing medical records, apparently of those injured in the Tucson shooting spree. No time wasted, no explanations requested or offered. Just fired. That's the right thing to do. Employees will always be tempted to snoop; the best way to prevent them from giving in to that temptation is to harshly deal with those who do give in.
