After Lamar Odom was stabilized at a local hospital near the brothel he was found unconscious, he was transferred to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where he spent the first few days of his recovery. During that time, he was mostly in a coma and was relying entirely on the staff (and Khloe Kardashian) to .
Unfortunately, some of those workers who were supposed to be helping him were actually trying to sneak a photo of him as he lay comatose in his hospital bed. What's more, they even tried to access his medical records, a clear violation of the HIPAA privacy policies.
According to TMZ, "several" employees were promptly fired by the hospital when they discovered what had happened. They also issued a statement to the site reiterating the heavy priority they place on patient privacy, saying, "We take all patient privacy very seriously and follow all HIPAA policies in compliance with federal regulations."
Of course, there were honest and caring staff members that helped Lamar in his recovery. In a statement on her website last week, Khloe made sure to thank them for everything they had done. "I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work," she wrote.
Lamar is currently at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, where his room is being guarded 24/7 by security and the only visitor allowed in is Khloe.
