According to CBS Chicago, a nurse, who remains anonymous, said that she was sacked from Northwestern Memorial Hospital last Tuesday for simply scrolling past the actor's chart without actually accessing it.
One nurse told CBS Chicago that she was merely scrolling past Smollett's record to get to another patient's file. Prior to being officially accused of a staging a hoax, Smollett gave a televised interview where he expressed outrage at those who doubted his story.
On Jan. 29, Smollett arrived at Northwestern and claimed he was attacked by two men while walking home from a Subway around 2 a.m.
Sources from various reports are saying that dozens of workers have been fired on the spot, after they allegedly gained access to the Empire actor's medical records.
According to the Chicago Police Department, Smollett paid Abimbola "Abel" and Olabinjo "Ola" Osundairo by check for a "phony attack" in order to take "advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career".
He had some scratches and bruising on his face and also claimed to have bruises on his ribs. She says she wasn't asked any questions and never had a chance to offer an explanation.
This nurse who was sacked plans to appeal her case with Northwestern Hospital. She's appealing her dismissal and is speaking out because she fears others may have been overzealously fired over the same misunderstanding.
Smollett has maintained his innocence and denied all allegations against him, as producers of the FOX drama series made the decision to cut his character off the final two episodes of Season 5 to avoid further production disruptions during the investigation.
The publication went on to state that unnamed sourced have confirmed that several more Northwestern employees have also been fired for the same offense.
The hospital is refusing the comment on situation, citing confidentiality rules. In addition to representing Smollett, Geragos is also now working for Colin Kaepernick.
His careful, heavily guarded, and private response prohibiting access to outside parties, is, incidentally, the expected protocol for health-related matters.
