Two workers fired for accessing Jason Pierre-Paul’s medical records
Two hospital workers have been fired for inappropriately accessing the medical records of New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.
Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami announced the firings Friday. After an investigation and pending litigation, the hospital let go two employees who “inappropriately accessed [Pierre-Paul’s] health record.”
The defensive end’s medical records were published on Twitter by ESPN’s Adam Schefter in July. Pierre-Paul sustained serious hand injuries as the result of a July 4 fireworks accident, resulting in the amputation of his right index finger.
Pierre-Paul returned to the Giants in October after a lengthy standoff over the status of his hand. He played in eight games in 2015, recording one sack and 26 total tackles.
