Sam, who works at the information desk, has
heard through the grapevine that there is a
celebrity currently undergoing cancer treatment
here at the hospital. A member of the news
media approaches him for information about
this person's condition and treatment. When
Sam looks at the patient list, he sees that this
person has "opted out" and is not listed. Sam
tells the reporter, "Yes, that person is here and
is currently undergoing treatment for cancer but
that's all I can tell you."
Did Sam say too much?
