Don't Trust Nurses

This kind of story must send a chill through the extreme sex play community.

Two nurses were fired after allegedly taking camera phone pics of someone's x-ray.
The patient was admitted to the emergency room with an object lodged in his rectum. Police said the nurse explained she and a co-worker snapped photos when they learned it was a sex device. Police said discussion about the incident was posted on her Facebook page, but they haven't found anyone who actually saw the pictures.
Are the nurses bad people? Who knows? The simple truth is that ordinary human beings are incapable of resisting the urge to document such a sight. If I worked in that hospital, I would have done the same thing, but I would have done it discreetly . My picture wouldn't have been posted on a public forum. I would have been very respectful and merely shown all my friends the picture IN PERSON. I would never forward the picture either. It would be safe, on my phone.

Feh. There have been whole websites dedicated to this kind of thing. C'mon it's the Internet we're talking about here.

Keystering is the term you are looking for. See also Scrubs Season 1 Episode 5.

I don't know if this was a national story or not; but I vaguely remember an incident that happened years before the HIPAA laws were established. The details are a bit cloudy but... A famous rapper by the name of Foxy Brown was admitted to a particular hospital in New York. In exchange for a prize, one of the workers at this hospital faxed over a copy of Foxy Brown's medical record to a local radio show. Upon her arrival at the station looking to collect her prize, this hospital worker met a representative of that same particular hospital who, I believe, promptly informed her that she was now unemployed.
This doesn't prove whether or not she or the nurses of your story were in the right or in the wrong... This simply proves that with all things being equal, people are dumb.
