In March 2008, The Los Angeles Times reported on repeated violations of Britney Spears' private medical records at UCLA Medical Center during her involuntary hold there starting on January 31, 2008.


"UCLA Medical Center is taking steps to fire at least 13 employees and has suspended at least six others for snooping in the confidential medical records of pop star Britney Spears during her recent hospitalization in its psychiatric unit, a person familiar with the matter said Friday. "In addition, six physicians face discipline for peeking at her computerized records, the person said."

Similar privacy violations occurred at the same medical center in 2005 during Spears's delivery of her first child.
