Magda Szubanski slams nurse for tweeting about her hospital visit

Magda Szubanski slams nurse for tweeting about her hospital visit

Magda Szubanski said she was left feeling “very vulnerable and unsafe” after a person claiming to be a nurse posted online about her recent hospital stay.

The Kath & Kim star, who recently underwent an operation, expressed her outrage after finding a Twitter post from a medical professional who claimed to have looked after her.

“Post-op is an extremely vulnerable time and I think your employers would be very concerned for the privacy of any patients in your “care”,” the 58-year-old wrote in response to the tweet, which has now been deleted.

“I have to say it was quite upsetting to find that in my feed. Made me feel very vulnerable and unsafe.

“I bloody love nurses and medical professionals and am a huge supporter of their rights. I wanted to be a doctor when I was young. But I have to say this has quite shaken me up. The thought that I’m not safe at my most vulnerable.”

Following an outpouring of support from her fans and followers, Szubanski said she would follow the matter up “through the appropriate channels” if she decided to do so.
