So I literally just read this article.
My wife is a cardiac nurse and does an awesome job. They have a very difficult profession. Kate Middleton’s nurse has just committed suicide after an apparant phone prank (bullying). She left behind a husband and two children. Sure, she’s responsible for her actions, but bullying isn’t only seen in middle schools and high schools. As a Christ-follower, stand up for those getting bullied- please.
Here’s the statement from the hospital in London.
“It is with deep sadness as I can confirm the tragic death of a member of our nursing staff, Jacintha Saldanha,” said John Lofthouse, chief executive of the hospital, said in a statement. “Jacintha has worked at the King Edward VII Hospital for over four years. She was an excellent nurse and well-respected and popular with all of her colleagues. We can confirm that Jacintha was recently the victim of a hoax call to the hospital. The hospital had been supporting her through this very difficult time. Jacintha was a first-class nurse who cared diligently for hundreds of patients during her time with us. Everyone is shocked by the loss of a much loved and valued colleague. Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with her family and her friends. Thank you.”
