Hospital Where Philly Gay Bashing Suspect Worked Says ‘She Has Been Suspended From Her Job’


A local hospital has confirmed that one of the suspects in the Philadelphia anti-gay attack has been suspended from her job there.

24-year old Kathryn Knott, who surrendered to Philadelphia Police this morning, has been suspended from her job at Abington Health, a local area hospital. 

"Because of the nature of the charges against her, she has been suspended from her job as an Emergency Room tech," reads a statement from the hospital reported by WPVI-TV's Kenneth Moton.

Additionally, Knott appears to have tweeted at least five x-rays, which might be in violation of patient confidentiality laws.

"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," the hospital statement continues. "Abington Health takes patient privacy and confidentiality very seriously and is fully investigating this matter."
