'B's label had not taken any action toward the two doctors, but the hospital put forth their own investigation, and after internal consideration, the doctors were suspended from practicing for 1 month and would work with a reduced salary for 3 months. The hospital explained that the doctors spreading news about 'B' coming to the emergency room without 'B's permission was an act of leaking private patient information.
The Chairman of Medical Ethic Acadamy said, "Even if the doctors themselves thought it was simple gossip material, all information on patients is related to the diagnosis and treatment, so it should not be leaked outward. Of course, when a celebrity comes to a hospital, it wouldn't be problematic to take a photo with permission to keep for themselves. However, acts where such things are used to promote a hospital, or where such things are spread to others should be stopped."
