Phoenix Children’s sued after revealing unvaccinated workers

November 9, 2021 GMT

PHOENIX (AP) — Two Phoenix Children’s Hospital workers are suing after employees with a vaccine-mandate exemption were able to see each other’s email addresses.

Hospital administrators sent an email last month with safety protocols to unvaccinated workers but did not put the 368 recipients in the blind carbon copy field.

The workers allege the hospital was negligent with their private health information. Their lawyer, Alexander Kolodin, is seeking-class action status.

“Since learning of our administrative error, we immediately informed affected employees of the error, extended our sincere apologies and explained that efforts had been taken to avoid similar mistakes in the future,” hospital officials said in a statement to KSAZ-TV.
