Four nurses in Atlanta have been fired for recording a TikTok video in which they complained about their patients and their families.
In the video, the nurses can be heard saying things like “we already told you to push the call light” and “every five minutes you have a family member coming to the front desk asking for something else.” The video went viral, but the nurses were subsequently fired for their unprofessional behavior.
In the viral TikTok video, a colleague of the nurses appears on camera and does a sarcastic impression of a demanding relative, saying things like “Excuse me! Excuse me! Excuse me! Can I have some water? Excuse me! Can I have a blanket?” Four Emory Healthcare workers were featured in the video, which was widely shared online before being removed.
Another nurse in the video complains about mothers asking about the weight of their newborns while still holding them. The unprofessional behavior and disrespect shown in the video led to the nurses being fired from their jobs.
The TikTok video featuring the nurses complaining about their patients and their families sparked outrage and concern online, with many people expressing disbelief that the nurses would speak so disrespectfully about the people they are supposed to be caring for.
One person commented, “Imagine saying these things with women at the most [vulnerable] moment in our lives.” ABC affiliate WSB-TV confirmed that the nurses in the video had all been fired from their jobs.
