UCLA Medical Center has known since at least 1995 that its employees were improperly looking at confidential medical files of some patients.

A former hospital assistant , told the L.A. Times he was one of a group of workers fired in 1995 for records snooping.

Earlier this week, former administrative specialist Lawanda Jackson confirmed she peeked into the medical records of more than 60 UCLA patients in 2006 and 2007. Jackson resigned from the hospital in May 2007 as it was preparing to fire her.

State health officials are determining what action to take against the facility.
