ABS News reporter Kenneth Morton shares on his Facebook page that Philly gay-bashing defendant Kathryn Knott has been suspended from her job as a nurse due to the charges filed against her in the violent September attack on two gay men.
In addition, the hospital is now investigating whether Knott violated medical privacy laws by tweeting personal medical files and scans on her Twitter account:
“We can confirm that Kathryn Knott has been employed at Lansdale Hospital since May 2011.
“Because of the nature of the charges against her, she has been suspended from her job as an Emergency Room tech.
“We are investigating an additional issue that was brought to our attention related to this employee’s Twitter account for potential violations of patient privacy and our organization’s social media policy. Abington Health takes patient privacy and confidentiality very seriously and is fully investigating this matter.”
