Two nurses were forbidden to offer medical services in a military hospital in Florida after their superiors found out they exhibited an outrageous behavior towards several newborns. Several Snapchat posts revealed how the women handled the infants inappropriately, made obscene gestured towards them, and called them by offensive names.
The nurses were revealed by Snapchat
A video and a Snapchat post exposed the misconduct of the two nurses. The video showed one of them holding a newborn by the armpits, a position which can seriously damage the infant at such an early age. Apart from improperly holding the baby, the woman moved his body and arms to a rap tune which played in the background.
The Snapchat photo was way more offensive. It captured another newborn as he was sleeping, and the woman showing him a middle finger. Also, the caption on the photo read “How I currently feel about these mini Satans”. Investigators couldn’t tell if this was the same woman from the video, but they found out the Snapchat account belonged to one of the nurses working at the hospital.
A criminal investigation is currently under way
The hospital officials, as well as the authorities from the US Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, made sure the women would no longer be directly involved with the patients. Also, they notified the parents of the incident, and assured the others no similar events would take place. Moreover, medical employees of the hospital will no longer be allowed to use their phones during working hours.
The staff presented the case to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and is currently waiting for their sentence. The service usually looks into cases of felony regarding Navy employees, and will decide what is to be done regarding the two women. It seems they were not actually nurses, but medical officers in the Navy, so they might suffer serious charges for their outrageous behavior.
