Patient with STD sues hospital for posting her health records on Facebook

Data dump; Insider attack; Unauthorized use of employer’s data

The lawsuit against UC Medical Center contains a screenshot of the Cincinnati woman's medical records, showing all of her personal information including a diagnosis of syphilis.

The woman is suing the hospital, an employee named Ryan Rawls, another unnamed employee who's believed to be a nurse, and the woman's ex-boyfriend, Raphael Bradley.

Attorney Mike Allen said Bradley convinced the employees to release the medical records. Bradley would not comment to WLWT but confirmed the woman is Rawls' girlfriend.

The attorney said employees at the center took the photo and posted it on a Facebook group called "Team No Hoes."

"We have not received a copy of the lawsuit but we will certainly investigate it and we cannot comment on pending litigation," UC Medical Center spokeswoman Diana Lara said.
