University of Iowa employees violate patient privacy records

IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- One employee at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City is without a job and seven others are suspended for five days without pay.

Employees reportedly looked at private patient information.

Hospital officials say they learned about the violations during a routine check of computer access to patient information.

Once hired, all employees are required to sign a statement saying they understand privacy rules.

The names of the employees weren't released.
