Northwestern Hospital Firings After Smollett Record Access

Jussie Smollett Suspects

Jussie Smollett Suspects

One nurse from Northwestern Memorial Hospital told CBS Chicago that they and others were fired by bosses for looking at Smollett's medical records after he was treated in the emergency room on January 29.

The day Smollett was at the hospital, his arrival and the alleged attack were all over the news, the worker said.

Smollett arrived at Northwestern on January 29, claiming he was walking home from a Subway restaurant around 2 a.m. when two men yelled racial and homophobic slurs at him.

One of the unnamed nurses who was sacked, claims to CBS Chicago that she never herself even accessed Smollett's chart.

The nurse claims she that at the end of her shift last Tuesday, she was called in by her employers and unceremoniously terminated on the spot, then escorted out of the building, without ever being provided an opportunity to defend herself. She says she wasn't asked any questions and never had a chance to offer an explanation. She's appealing her dismissal and is speaking out because she fears others may have been overzealously fired over the same misunderstanding. He said they beat him, put a rope around his neck and poured an unknown chemical substance on him.

Northwestern Hospital Jussie Smollett

Police say that brothers Abel and Ola Osundairo punched him during the allegedly staged attack but that he cut himself on the face to make it look more believable.

By Feb. 21, he was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct for filing a false report.

The Chicago Police Department spent weeks combing through security footage and interviewing witnesses as part of the probe while Smollett performed to sold out audiences and went on Good Morning America. "They're also checking the postage stamp against the stamps found in the brothers' apartment".

Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson may have also gone too far when he said Jussie paid the brothers $3,500 to stage the attack. "That's just the guy I know". And, a text on January 25 reads, 'This is the meal plan and the breakdown of macronutrients.

"Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing".

Martin then went on to add. "Now that the show is ahead of the books, it seems the show could ruin the books for people". He had previously filmed an appearance in the show's original pilot, playing a guest in Dany's wedding.
