The Bellflower facility, where 23 unauthorized workers accessed Nadya Suleman's records, is the first to be monetarily penalized under a new state law.
California health regulators fined Kaiser Permanente's Bellflower Hospital $250,000 Thursday for failing to keep employees from snooping in the medical records of Nadya Suleman, the mother who set off a media frenzy after giving birth to octuplets in January.
