Octo-Mom Back in the Hospital to Remove Uterine Tumors and Kaiser Gets Fined Over Privacy

Posted May 15 2009 10:44pm 1 Comment

Well my opinion only but with the amount of children she now has, get rid of the uterus, especially if matters of this type begin occurring.  There’s image this procedure called a partial hysterectomy that could do the trick. 

In the meantime, Kaiser, was lucky or should I say not lucky enough to get fined over the privacy issues of employees looking at her chart.  They use the Epic System, which has a security screen that asks all employees who should not be accessing the chart as to why they need access.  That in itself is enough to keep most snooping noses out, but obviously not all.

There are audit trails on the systems too, so it is no big secret that you have been in the chart, what screens you looked at and the full amount of time.  In this instance they took action so was the fine more for notoriety purposes?  

I learned about the “Break the Glass” procedure when I conducted an interview with Dr. James Leo from Long Beach Community Hospital, who also uses the EPIC system.  BD

Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman is back in the hospital.
After undergoing surgery to remove fibroids -- benign muscular tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus -- Suleman's mother, Angela Suleman told that she will have to go under the knife again.

"They tried to do surgery to remove the fibroids, but she was bleeding excessively, so they stopped," Angela told Us Thursday. "They are going to try again Monday."
Angela -- who added that Suleman might be hospitalized for more than two weeks -- has not been to visit.
