Hospital workers fired after uploading patient photos

Posted: September 23, 2008 in Tech

Two University of New Mexico hospital workers have been fired after they posted patient pictures on MySpace. The workers used their cell phone cameras to take close-up pictures of injuries and then posted them to their private MySpace pages for their friends and coworkers to see.

So far no charges have been filed and the photos have been deleted from MySpace and from the workers’ cell phones.
