Betty Ford Staffer FIRED For Talking About Lindsay!

And so she should be, if you ask us! Regardless of who the victim is in this scenario, it was completely unethical of her to run to the presses with her story.

We've just learned the Dawn Holland, the Betty Ford staffer who got into a kerfuffle with Lindsay Lohan this week, has been FIRED from her position at the clinic for telling her story to TMZ. According to Dawn, shortly after her interview broke on the website, she was called by the head of the clinic, who told her she was in violation of a patient confidentiality agreement and was thus terminated from her position. Dawn reveals that she scolded her superior for not having her back in this situation and called him out on placing her on administrative leave, which she insists "9 times out of 10 that means the employee will be fired."

Well, she got that right at least!

Dawn maintains that while the Betty Ford people wanted her to keep everything quiet, she was fervent about defending herself from what may have been said about her in the press. She explained:

"The story was already way out there in the open before I spoke. If Lindsay is allowed to say, 'Fire that bitch,' I should be able to defend myself."

Defend yourself, yes. Give a play-by-play that compromises everyone involved, including yourself, we think not.

    Lohan is a huge waste of air space.



  2. 2

    There ARE laws regarding medical confidentiality, not just clinic to clinic rules or contracts. HIPAA. There's all sorts of things you could get fired for, and it could be as simple as accessing a patients' medical record when you're not treating them. Even mentioning Lindsay is at the clinic is a breach of confidentiality.



  3. 3

    Lindsay creates drama and trouble everywhere she goes.



  4. 4

    I have worked in the medical field for a long time. As soon as I saw her interview I knew she broke the HIPPA laws. They were correct in firing her. I also believe her story about Lindsay.



  5. 5

    why are you posting articles from yesterday? this is really old recycled news



  6. 6

    Does that mean that Lindsey is FIRED too?



  7. 7

    Strange though, this woman said she hurt her wrist and is right handed, but did you see the length of her story when she filled out her incident report. If my wrist hurt that bad it would be difficult to type or write……Just sayin…….



  8. 8

    Are you kidding Perez?!
    LiLo is in ALL of the mess because she is a spoiled brat! Yes that staffer should be fired (It's for the better hunny), but it doesn't mean she can't defend herself. Miss Lohan has had everything handed to her…. and always will. Why do you think her fragile ass gets into sooo many fights? She will not change, it's just not possible ! But can I get a hand clap for Lindsay's thighs???!!! Girl looks way better when she reduces her meth intake.



  9. 9

    While unfortunate that the staffer got fired, it's justified. She should've kept her mouth shut and hired Gloria Allred.



  10. 10

    Curious that they went to a bar and yet the bar nor bartender have come forward. Maybe when it comes to any publicity involving LiLo ends up being BAD PUBLICITY. And seriously, does anyone believe that she was anywhere close to taking this re.hab stint seriously?!!? She was just acting her way through it, her idiot parents were dropping all those 'positive' leaks such that there would be a lot of interest when she left BF and would cash in on the interviews, blah blah blah. Nothing has changed with this d.list train wreck!

    She should be fired. No matter who the patient is, she broke HIPPA laws. Now her credibility is in question.



  12. 12

    Dawn Holland has an interesting point about defending herself.
    Dawn did not go to the press first.

    Re: fairmaiden – I think the incident report is written by someone else.



  14. 14

    these lohans are the lowest selfish, entitled grifters. no taking responsbility for their actions and teaching their awful children the same. i have no hope for that girl and don't believe a word she says. everywhere she goes: drama and it's NEVER her fault. never! always an excuse and always someone else to blame. trash the whole family.



  15. 15

    Everyone knows Lindsay is at Betty Ford - it was ordered by a judge. It's public knowledge. That she violated probation by drinking is also in the public domain if she's charged with that, but I guess Mama Dina told her not to blow so there may be no evidence of that. I feel bad for the staffer, but she doesn't seem that bright so her judgment is what it is. I hope Lindsay ends up in jail. No one is getting their hair done at 1:00 a.m. Get real.



  16. 16

    you violate HIPAA laws, you pay the price. end of story.



  17. 17

    She is an angry black bitch. What do you expect?



  18. 18

    This ain't right. Yes, perhaps she should be 'reprimanded' for discussing such matters, but to be fired ? Really, the HoHan power-tripping continues. And, WHAT was the SKANK WHORE BITCH doing at a bar, anyways … ? ! SHE IS IN FR'K'N RE-HAB ! ! ! Again, this HoHan Whore is a total waste of skin ….



  19. 19

    "We think not." That's the most honest thing you've ever said, but most of us already know, Perez, that you're not a thinker.
    .
    The worker violated privacy laws, and deserved to lose her job for it.
    .
    And why the fuck do you keep saying "presses?" She ran to the press. Asshole.
    .
    Lohan is a stupid whore. Stop giving her attention, and stop treating her like she's an innocent victim. She's worked hard to make her own trouble, and she deserves what she gets.



  20. 20

    HoHans as grifters ! You nailed that Bang On !



  21. 21

    I agree that she should have been fired, but for the sole reason of breaking her medical confidentiality with a patient. HOWEVER i can totally understand where she would want to defend herself. I would be besides myself and deffinatly defend myself had someone come out saying nasty things like that, however there was a more professional way she could have come out. But i do agree that he clinic should have come to at least stand by her. However she deffinatly violated the HIPPA laws by speaking the patients name, and refering to a inicident which took place within the rehab center. But i would have defended myself too, so you cant really blame the woman, even thoug there was a better way to assess and handle the situation.



  22. 22

    I guess you're feeling all warm and fuzzy now eh Lindsay?Fuck off and die c**t.



  23. 23

    OMG Lindsay is such a lost cause. Everywhere she goes, there's drama. She doesn't give a sh*t if she gets better. She just wants to stay out of prison, which she has managed to do.

    So tired of all her special treatment. Everyone deserves second chances, but she's already at her 1000th chance.



  24. 24

    Lohan is a fool. She cost this woman her job. She probably never even gave one thought to the fact that this lady has to put food on her table. This is just shameful. Lohan in an uneducated, untalented hack. How she has muddled her way through a lucrative career being such a dumb shit is beyond me.



  25. 25

    Re: mobius lion – I agree with you completely. I am sick of hearing about anybody in that dysfunctional family.



  26. 26

    She sounds like a media whore bitch to me. You work at clinics like that to help people, not get your name in the press by scuffling like a piece of trash with celebrity patients.

    Get some class.



  27. 27

    LL was counting on the staffer not being able to defend herself in the press. But the staffer did violate the law, it seems. (Maybe she thought it would be worth it, just to stand up to that sinkhole of a person.) (What's next, a civil suit against LL? But is there enough money there to make that a logical move?)



  28. 28

    the staffer deserved to be fired. she broke patient confidentiality by telling her story. she shouldnt have been risking going to media outlets and telling her story because she knew it was breaking rules. oh well, it is sad that lindsay seems to find drama wherever she goes.



  29. 29

    Good luck ever getting a job in the same field you stupid fucking wannabe-famwhore.



  30. 30

    Re: TCYB In this woman's statement she states " I began writing my incident report". I have also had to write out an incident report before in my own hand.



  31. 31

    Lindsay is like a disease.. she infects everyone around her. She should be somewhere on an island with the rest of her crazy family…. Spare the rest of us.. and why this story deserves so many posts is beyond me.



  32. 32

    Re: lizarellie – it would be.. had these facts not already been made public. By Lindsay opening up to the press first…. she made it public knowledge…. Very hypocritical of this little twit to run her big fat mouth and not expect the opposing side to have a platform to speak… SMH.. HIPAA gone wrong.. HIPAA should not be used as a crutch to protect these self righteous clowns.



  33. 33

    I get that she broke confidentiality and needed to be fired because of it, but this just feeds into Lindsay's idea that she is so above all this rehab shit and can do & say whatever she wants. I hope they DO release the surveillance videos, I'd love to judge for myself. I have a feeling though that this will all be hidden from the public and Lindsay will come out smelling like roses, as usual. This bitch has more teflon coating than Charlie Sheen.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS, everyone!

    Run to the press about what?! Lindsay was the one who told everyone she was in Betty Ford! She tips off the paparazzi to stay relevant! She was in a BAR!!!!! She need to be in JAIL!!!!!

    Good for Betty Ford. THey are regarded so highly because of their commitment to helping people. Honestly with someone like LIndsey being so popular to with the PAPS you know someone would want to make money off her and her name. The staffer saw dollar signs and took advantage. Also others there going through with drawl have to feel stress. A staffer at Betty Ford knows what they are walking into and I would think they want to help those who come to the center. Someone is on the addicts side so GOOD FOR BETTY FORD.

    ya know, were gonna have to just give up on this ignorant kunt….its obvious ,shes not going to get sober…its a waste of time….lets just get her a big bindle of coke, and all the booze she can drink, and a hotel room… when shes dead, then maybe some kids will get the point…then, she'll be a great role model.



  38. 38

    Yes Everyone knows that Lindsey is at the Betty Ford Clinic, but that doesnt mean staffers can talk about their interaction with her, knowing that she might talk about the problems to the press. The Clinic was right to fire her. The woman does have a right to defend herself, but there are other ways to do that



  39. 39

    Chick should loose what ever podunk certification she has as well.

    I guess the staffer will be going after both Lohan AND Betty Ford. If her contract rules out talking about incidents publicly, she might be out of luck. Lindsay Lohan just spreads her glittery fairy dust every where she goes. Now someone is out of a job and freshly divorced at Christmas time. How to go, Lindsay Lohan.

    lindsay can apply to have the prison guards fired later
