Nurse Suicide

Report: Hospital Criticism

May Have Triggered Suicide

The nurse in the Kate Middleton hoax may have hanged herself in part because the hospital came down on her hard ... this according to a new report.

The Daily Mail claims to have a source connected to the nurse's family, who says in one of the suicide notes the woman, Jacintha Saldanha, is critical of the hospital for the treatment she received.  The story does not flesh out whether the treatment is connected to the hoax, but it appears to be the case, given one of the other suicide notes which reportedly describes how she tried to cope with the fallout due to the prank call.

So the question ... did hospital management come down on the nurse hard?  A hospital spokesperson claims hospital management was supportive, but they are not privy to what she wrote in the notes.

As for the third note, the report claims the nurse laid out plans for her funeral.

The hospital holds some account because the way these people are so damn obsessed with the royals, I'm so sure they mad her feel like **** because of her mistake and she wasn't strong enough to deal with it so she killed herself .... I'm so sure that's what really happened .....

The royals are to blame indirectly for this absurd amount of media coverage that resulted in curiosity all over the world and loss of a dedicated nurse. Royals are celebrity entertainment in the center of media, sparking curitosity once again all over the world yet, had not one basic thing in place themselves for security while Kate was hospitalized. They expect everyone to do everything for them while they do nothing for themselves for their own privacy (like the nude photos of Kate and Harry). If the royals had done something security wise when it came to phone calls this would have gone differently. They could have done something as simple as a four digit code amongst themselves & staff to help with privacy in order better know if a call was legite from the palace. It's not like they haven't been famous royals since yesterday w/ media intruding. They're being lazy & everything is on everyone else's shoulders to deal with. I've lost all respect for the royal family over the past year - this incident was the final straw because the royal family has done nothing other than have a sympathy message released from the palace. If that's all they can lift their finger to do then how sadly pathetic! I thought the royal family is known to help those in need or crisis. Yet, what have they done to help this family fallen victim to the media and a death? They should know better than anyone this pain. Still they love smiling at the media egging them on knowing it's powerful to kill people near them. If Princess Diana were still alive, or if it were her in the hospital I bet things would have gone much differently. Others weren't nonexistent to her & she overflowed with love toward humanity even when she was down and sick from pregnancy. I'm pretty sure Diana would have taken it upon herself to make sure the nurses were looked after, consoled and forgiven for a human mistake right away & BEFORE switching shifts (if she were too sick she would have made sure someone responsible were helping them & minimizing embarrassement/damage/their careers). I can't see her in any situation leaving beloved nurses vulnerable during a time of not having experience of dealing with the worldwide media embarrassment. (Lastly, it's not like the public learned anything medically about Kate they didn't know about already.)

I do not care how hard the hospital came down on this woman. only a crazy person would have hung herself no matter how hard the hospital reprimanded her. Which they should have done because she did something wrong.

We all knew the Hospital was at fault. You knew the Hospital Officials would be kissing the royal ass and this innocent nurse would be paying the price when in fact the culprit is the nurse who actually divulge the information. The hypocrisy of the Hospital top guns to say publicly they were supporting the nurse. Her Family should sue the Hospital and the royals big time! Shame on them, a person dead because Kate is having morning sickness who the bloody hell cares.
