  • Florida nurse's video rant about difficult flu season goes viral

Katherine Lockler is nurse in Florida who, frustrated after an exhausting 12-hour shift, chose to post a video to social media in which she ranted about the flu season and offered up some hospital horror stories.

A Florida nurse posted a video to her Facebook Jan. 27, highlighting the importance of flu prevention amid such a severe season, reports USA Today. "Please don't bring your healthy children - especially your newborn babies - into the emergency room".

"I saw a father with a little child creeping on the floor in the emergency room and I moved toward him and I stated, 'Hello father, I don't feel that that is an insightful choice, your kid is being presented to some extremely terrible germs on this emergency room floor, '" Lockler said. "My hands didn't because it's fantastic to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hand and I watch".

A frustrated nurse coming off a long shift in the emergency room shared a bit of unsolicited advice in a Facebook video over the weekend, warning people not to come to the "cesspool of funky flu at the ER" unless they really have to.

3 types of flu are rampant in Coryell County
Other strains of the flu, like H1N1 and Influenza B viruses, are also circulating, and they're better served by the vaccine. Andrew Cuomo on January 25 signed an executive order to allow pharmacists to administer vaccines to children and teenagers.

Just like the case with most popular Internet videos, Lockler's account was gotten decidedly and adversely.

Lockler noted that there were "25 to 30 patients sitting for hours in the emergency room waiting room", some of which were not even medical emergencies.

The clip has been polarizing, owing to Lockler's sarcastic inflection and animated facial expressions. "Half of them don't realize they have the flu yet - they'll be back".

"Watch this, I'm going to teach you a magic trick, it's incredible", Katherine says. Lockler says in the video, before pretending to sneeze into her arm, covering both her nose and mouth at the same time, in order to demonstrate. Five flus walk in, 15 flus walk out!

"Let me show you again in slow motion!" she says, before doing it one more time.

"Also, rather than the father getting what a nurse of 10 years is imparting to him, he stated, 'Eh, it's no major ordeal, it'll construct his safe framework.' So there's an absence of comprehension and an absence of enthusiasm for recognizing what to do to secure themselves some of the time". But there are probably several weeks left of increasing flu activity this season, she warned.

Locker who has worked as a nurse for 18 years told the Pensacola News Journal that she was pressed to upload the video after she saw the child crawling. She went on to apologize to anyone offended by her tone, but insists that regardless of how she may have come off the message is still "right on the money". "We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help".
