Jussie Smollett Fallout Continues: Hospital Workers Fired Over ‘Inappropriate’ Handling of Smollett Records

Guest post by Bright Start News

Just when you thought the Jussie Smollett hoax couldn’t do more harm, hospital employees have been fired over Smollett’s patient files being “inappropriately accessed.”

The Northwestern Memorial Hospital employee thought nothing of it when a coworker walked over to her desk and asked if “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett had been admitted under an alias.

Now, the employee — an administrator with an advanced degree — is out of a job, after she was told she’d inappropriately accessed Smollett’s records, violating hospital rules.

The administrator, who didn’t want her name used, told the Chicago Sun-Times she was stunned by her dismissal — and she suspects others may have been fired or disciplined for doing the same thing.

This is all Jussie’s fault.
