The Los Angeles Times reported that the security breaches happened while Kim Kardashian was at the hospital after she had her baby on June 15. The breaches happened between June 18 and June 24. Four of the Cedars-Sinai Hospital employees who were let go worked for physicians who had access to medical staff privileges at the hospital. One of the employees was a medical assistant worked at the hospital. Another was a student research assistant, which was an unpaid position.
