(Newser) – Kate Gosselin of Jon & Kate Plus 8 must have set some sort of record when she fired 40 nurses and nurse’s aides in three months. Former Gosselin sextuplets nurse Angela Krall disclosed that tidbit, and more, to Us, adding that one was fired after daring to wash her hands in the kitchen: “Kate flipped. She thought it was cross-contamination.”

Krall is the nurse Gosselin wanted the state to pay for in 2005, when the AP reported her belief that “society has a responsibility to help with the children” born with help of fertility drugs pushed by modern medicine. Krall echoed that attitude to Us, saying Gosselin “thought they were owed stuff. The money factor was huge.”
