VIP Privacy Breach: Cricket Star Jesse Ryder

While being treated in a New Zealand Hospital, cricket star Jessee Ryder's medical records were inappropriately access by four clinical staff members.

Hospital staff members are supposed to access only records of patients under their care, so this was clearly a breach of a patient's privacy. The hospital issued an apology to Ryder and contacted the office of the Privacy Commissioner.

"During Ryder's time in hospital four clinical staff allegedly accessed his x-ray results, despite not being involved in his care."
