The naval hospital in Jacksonville is apologizing for a social media post. The video shows a nurse making a new born baby do a dance to a rap song. But that’s not all the hospital posted a statement on social media apologizing for the nurses actions.
As the song plays she moves the newborn’s arms around to the beat, imitating rap musicians in music videos.
Pictures of the incident were shared hundreds of thousands of times after being posted online, and were quickly brought to the attention of hospital authorities.
A statement from the hospital’s commanding officer said: ‘We are aware of the inappropriate video and photos and can confirm they are hospital corpsmen, not nurses, but we are unable to confirm their names or tenure in light of the ongoing investigation.
It’s not just the video that was posted they also took pictures and Snapchat and posted them to their friends. In the pictures you can see they clearly blurred out the faces of the new born children.
You can also see in the pictures that they made inappropriate gestures towards the newborn babies. In one picture you can see the nurse gives the middle finger to the newborn baby. She also called the baby a mini satan. The video was obtained by action news Jax.
A statement made by the hospital said:
‘The individuals have been removed from patient care, meaning they will not be providing direct patient care.
‘We are also contacting patients to address any questions or concerns they may have. This type of behavior is incompatible with the Navy’s core values of honor, courage and commitment, as well as medical ethics.
‘It also does not reflect the commitment Navy Medicine has to provide the best care our nation can offer to those who serve as well as their families.
‘An investigation is underway. Once the investigation is complete, appropriate actions will be taken.’
