Several Hospital Workers Reportedly Fired For Accessing Jussie Smollett’s Medical Chart

Several Hospital Workers Reportedly Fired For Accessing Jussie Smollett’s Medical Chart

The Chicago Police Department is trying to figure out who within their department leaked critical case information to the press during the Jussie Smollett investigation, ABC News reports.

One nurse, who preferred to remain unnamed, claims it was a misunderstanding, and denies ever accessing Smollett's chart. Prosecutors claim that Smollett hired his personal trainer, Abel Osundairo, and brother Ola Osundairo, to stage the assault.

Sergeant Rocco Alioto of the Chicago P.D. told ET on Thursday that an internal investigation has been opened into who was behind the leaks to the media in theEmpire actor's investigation.

Police say Smollett, who is black and gay, claimed two men hurled slurs and looped a rope around his neck on January 29, 2019, in downtown Chicago.

She said that it all happened at the end of her shift last Tuesday, when she was called in and fired without being given a chance to say anything. According to sources, those employees were terminated after receiving access to the "Empire" actor's medical chart.

Sweat, who measures 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds, recorded the fastest 40-yard dash time of any defensive lineman in Combine history. National Football League quarterbacks are going to have a very hard time running away from Montez Sweat .

This former Northwestern nurse is speaking out because she said that those who fired her at the hospital never asked her any investigative questions.

Smollett was arrested on February 21 after being charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report in which he claimed he was the victim of a hate crime.

Smollett told police that he was assaulted while out walking at 2 a.m. on January 29. Detectives investigated the incident as a hate crime but local news outlets cited police sources saying it was believed to be a hoax. The alleged attackers, brothers Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, were arrested and later released as they were said to be cooperating with police.

Jussie Smollett stirred up controversy when he was listed as a suspect in his own apparent attack and arrested as a result. "That's just the guy I know".

She maintains that she was simply scrolling to look at another patient's name-not Smollett's, and that she may have been fired simply because of the scroll.
