(Scroll down for video) A woman sued a hospital for publicizing her sexually transmitted disease to a Facebook page called Team No Hoes, according to court documents filed in Ohio.

The woman is suing the University of Cincinnati Medical Center after publishing her name and the diagnosis of syphilis on Facebook.

According to the lawsuit, hospital employee Ryan Rawls, gained access to personal medical records for the sole purpose of harming the victim. She is also suing her former boyfriend.

The 20-year-old victim refused to tell her former boyfriend, Raphael Bradley, why she was being treated at the hospital. That is when he contacted Rawls to check her medical records.

Days later, a screenshot of the medical records, which included the diagnosis of syphilis and other personal information, appeared on a Facebook page called “Team No Hoes.” The message was also sent by email to all members of the page.

“The woman suffered extreme emotional distress and lost friends because they think she has a contagious sexually transmitted disease. The victim said that she still receives harassing phone calls about the incident.

The woman is demanding $25,000 in damages.
