    IVT is not the quick fix for dehydration that most people think it is.
    'Tis true. Hopefully her age, general good health, and access to care will help everything turn out okay. And of course it would be nice if that were true for everybody.

    Haven't listened to it and have no intention of doing so. I read they gave a half assed apology on air but have since continued to make fun of the incident. I wonder if they are still laughing now the nurse who took the phone call has killed herself?! ********s!

    I won't listen to the call recording, either...and I'm horrified by the Saldanha suicide. That is sooooooooooooooooooo sad. Did you know her, Ally?

    Aww no, it just saddens me that she is reported to have been a good nurse and a careless stunt like this has ended in such tragedy.

    Okay, I started talking to Ally about this on our pages but I thought I'd pop my thoughts on over here.

    I think this whole thing is awful. BUT..... I have been reprimanded at work and not committed suicide. There had to have been something else going on.

    I did listen to the call and, frankly, she should have checked a little more before just doling out the information. In no way did it sound real. For goodness sake the woman DJ said, "Can I talk to my grandaughter Kate?" No last name, no name given, and the information came pouring out.

    Don't get me wrong at all - I have made incredibly stupid mistakes at work and I have suffered for them. I understand how this happened. But I do think suicide is a bit drastic.

    I also think that it (minus the suicide) is a good thing because it opened up the eyes of the hospital to see where privacy was lax. I don't really know that I think the DJ's did anything wrong.

    I do, though, feel devastated for the woman. To be in a place where you can take your own life - well, I can't even imagine. I wish she had found some peace but I can't imagine that it was just this that lead to it. I hope she has found some peace now.

    I doubt it was just this incident that led to her suicide either, but often it takes only one thing to be the catalyst that tips somebody over the edge. Some people are very good at hiding their problems, we may never know if there was anything else that contributed to her death. Like most nurses over here she was probably overworked, overly stressed, underpaid and felt undervalued, and that's without possible personal issues being taken into account.

    This hoax was international news...I can't even imagine how embarrassing that would feel, but I bet she felt incompetent at her job. Confidentiality is a big part of our NMC Code and breaching that is a sackable offence and enough to lose a nurse her registration. (I know a damn good nurse who this happened to!) Despite the hospital's claims they were supportive she will have been reprimanded, and probably feared for her job/future because it was such a publicised error of judgement.

    It's not funny anymore. Well, for me, it wasn't really that funny to begin with, but now with what's happened it has become so sad. I really do feel for the nurse's family! What a horrible tragedy! I just don't know what should be done to the two dj's who made the call? It really was done in all innocence. I saw the female dj talking (before the Nurse died) and she said that they were all very surprised to be put through to Kate's room and since she hadn't expected it she had no idea what to say. But, it's just not funny anymore.

    I used to hang out with Lady Lorazepam but after awhile her soporific effects started to wear off... She is not someone to have a long term relationship with but now and then I visit her when I need to
