A nurse at a hospital in Texas where a toddler tested positive for measles has been fired after she posted about the diagnosis on an anti-vaccination website, according to hospital officials.
The employee’s firing comes just one day after Texas Children’s Hospital said it was investigating the incident. “We were made aware that one of our nurses posted protected health information regarding a patient on social media,” the hospital said in a statement Tuesday night. “We take these matters very seriously as the privacy and well-being of our patients is always a top priority. After an internal investigation, this individual is no longer with the organization.”
