Lamar Odom’s hospitalization reportedly led to the firing of hospital employees after they allegedly tried to take a photo of him.

As Gossip Cop reported, Odom was treated at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas earlier this month, after he was found unconscious and unresponsive at a brothel following a suspected drug overdose. He spent several days in a coma with wife Khloe Kardashian and other family members by his bedside. Contrary to some claims, Kardashian did NOT have a “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” camera crew inside the hospital.

In fact, there was a strict ban on photography inside Odom’s hospital room. Now TMZ claims “several” unnamed hospital workers attempted to “sneak a photo” of him. It’s also claimed the employees tried to access his medical records, too.

It’s not clear how hospital management found out about the alleged breaches, but the staffers were fired. A rep for Sunrise tells TMZ, “We take all patient privacy very seriously and follow all HIPAA policies in compliance with federal regulations.” Odom is now getting care at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

At that facility, there has reportedly been a lockdown on who can enter Odom’s hospital room, as well as a limitation on the number of employees treating him, in order to limit information leaks. TMZ even recently reported that there’s security standing guard outside his door 24/7. Gossip Cop will continue to have updates as appropriate.
