Wendel on the Web is WKYC reporter/producer Kim Wendel's "take" and commentary on the news of the day
Sometimes TMI -- too much information -- is put on Facebook by users. A shock, I know.
I've seen detailed accounts of what they ate for dinner, what movie they saw, and pictures of bad cuts and bruises, along with expletive-filled rants about boyfriends or bosses.
(In fact, one longtime friend won't even get on Facebook. He calls it "Facepage" and says that he doesn't have the time nor the patience for the drama.)
But this tops them all.
The Associated Press reports that a Cincinnati woman, 20, had her medical record from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center posted on Facebook -- but she didn't do the posting.
The post revealed her name and a syphilis diagnosis.
Well, not surprisingly, on Tuesday, she sued the hospital where she was treated and the worker accused of accessing her file.
Now, here's where it gets really interesting.
She says she refused to tell her ex-boyfriend why she was being treated at the medical center. Apparently the ex- then called another woman he was romantically involved with who worked at the hospital.
The lawsuit says the worker accessed the woman's medical record and gave it to her ex. It was then posted to a Facebook page about allegedly promiscuous women.
It should come as no surprise that the medical center has already fired the employee and they have also contacted the feds because HIPPA laws were broken.
NBC affiliate WLWT in Cincinnati reported the info was posted on a closed group Facebook page "Team No Hoes."
The posting included derogatory comments about the woman, calling her a "hoe" and a "slut," her attorney Mike Allen said.
The group has more than 2,200 members,according to Facebook.
Checking out court records from the Hamilton County Court, the lawsuit names an employee named Ryan Rawls, an unnamed UC employee believed to be a nurse, and the victim's ex-boyfriend, Raphael Bradley.
I have seen enough bikini pics and drunken selfies on Facebook to last a lifetime already but I must say that, mostly, the good outweighs the bad.
