WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has fired five workers and a student research assistant for peeping at patients' private medical records in the days after reality television star Kim Kardashian gave birth to her daughter there.

The hospital declined to identify the patients involved to the Los Angeles Times, but a spokeswoman said all were notified of the breach.

The records were inappropriately accessed between June 18 and 24. Kardashian gave birth on June 15.

Representatives for Kardashian and the baby's father, rapper Kanye West, did not provide comment.

Four of those fired were employees of community physicians who have staff privileges at the hospital, one was a hospital medical assistant and one was an unpaid student research assistant.
