MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Jackson Memorial Hospital fired two employees following accusations that they leaked the medical information of a New York Giants football player.
The player in question is Jason Pierre-Paul who was treated at JMH after blasting a hand with fireworks last 4th of July in Broward.
JPP posted a video on his Facebook fan page of him last summer holding his baby while next to a moving truck he rented full of fireworks.
As a result of the accident Pierre-Paul had his right index finger amputated – right in the midst of negotiating a multimillion dollar NFL contract with the New York Giants. The Giants then pulled their $60 million offer.
So, now that Jackson Health settled a lawsuit, the hospital said it did investigate allegations of a breach, discovering two employees inappropriately accessed the patient’s health record.
That finding resulted in the termination of nurse Immacula Richmond and secretary Brenda Jackson.
CBS4 reached out to the nurse and the secretary but neither was available.
As for Pierre-Paul, he is back at it – playing for the Giants after all – after reaching an agreement in October.
