    My first thought when reading the article was:

    "Recovering from acute morning sickness?"

    WHAT???

    People get admitted to the hospital for that? When that happened to me, I went to work.

    And people are scared to death that poor people might be able to see a doctor when they're sick. Geezus.

    Hyperemesis gravidarum - Is not a run of the mill case of morning sickness, but for some women very serious indeed.

    Hyperemesis Gravidarum : American Pregnancy Association

    Just as with one's monthlies each woman's pregnancy is different. Some sail through the entire thing without so much as a sneeze, others have a more difficult time of things.

    The radio hosts come off as huge jerks who should be prosecuted for some sort of harassment. I'm not impressed with this mean-spirited "prank" and feel bad for the nurse who fell for it.

    HIPAA is a USA regualtion, not worldwide. Can imagine today's staff meeting...

    Yeah, I'm quite aware of that. I didn't have run of the mill morning sickness either, but I didn't wait until I was dehydrated to go to the doctor and get treatment/medications for it.

    I think she's being a princess, but that's just my opinion.

    I was wondering if England had something like HIPAA. This is why I feel uncomfortable giving info over the phone. Not that I've ever taken care of a famous person; it just seems to me that I have no way of knowing if it's really the right person on the phone or if they are lying.

    Well, they didn't want to announce the pregnancy yet but were forced to when she was admitted to hospital. It is quite possible she had already seen a doctor, but whatever medications or treatments he tried were not working.

    The radio station are now saying they never expected to get put through- fine. So they should have hung up when the nurse started giving them information live on air then.
