Sad, sad, sad. The prank wasn't even funny and the nurse was trying to be helpfull. It's something that teenagers would do when they are board. I hope those djs never work again.
Not only did they play a STUPID UNFUNNY prank they succeded in invading the privacy of a patient. I don't know what kind of privacy laws the socialist Brits have but this is why this was not funny. Listeners rather sacrifice the idea of patient privacy and get a laugh rather just ignore sophmorish stupidity.
And I don't even care about royalty or the royals nor do I have any urges to return to the ways that our ancestors escaped centuries ago.

Should add that I would not put it past the handlers and/or royal security to have had a "discussion" with this nurse. The obsession with and reactions from the royals is absurd on all levels.
After actually working with and/or for a couple of Brits forget the media image ie tv & movies about overly polite and scholarly. There's a reason they've had wars with their colonies and groups like the IRA. They have been a fading society yearning for the days and status of old and will do anything to pursue those goals.

The information was given to them freely. The blame is on the hospital.
Our HIPAA regulations protect our privacy. And if a nurse gives out info to someone who has not proven they should get the info, then the fault is on the provider of the info.
I'm sure if the patient was a nobody, and someone on the "other side" of the phone call says "I'm the young lady's dad", the provider would ask for more info to prove it.
This wasn't done.
I don't blame the prankster for the nurses action.
Now I would think the prankster would have some guilt if, for example, MI5 killed the nurse due to some information she gained or something, from the prank.

The blame is on the hospital for not having procedures in place or staff informed. But there are certain lines you really shouldn't cross or things you mess with and that's personal medical issues and privacy. I don't give two hoots about the royals but I do get the need for personal/medical privacy and the respect that should go along with that.

Please kindly $+fu you moron; first of all, the Nurse wasn't the original person to whom the pranksters spoke with; why did the hospital switchboard first even allow the pranksters through to the Nurse?- they should've screened the caller thoroughly to begin with..
Second, the suicide was the direct result of the prankster's idiotic prank, as once the Nurse realized it was a prank and that she had spoken about the patient's condition, she couldn't handle that fact and out of misplaced fear of legal and media retaliation she did this, only to leave her family and two kids who needed her, behind, and all of this b/c of a f'ing prank?????- and you're blaming the Nurse you idiot?
And these 2 stupid DJs- they thought they were being funny, but nobody's laughing, sad indeed...

Finally! Someone with a brain!
I had to laugh at the fool who was stupid enough to call you a moron. She was obviously raised to be a victim and always blame someone else for her actions.
The nurse was obviously not all there. That is not the radio DJ's fault.
