“Disturbing, horrifying, and utterly unacceptable.” These were the sentiments echoed by the public as a video depicting a group of nurses engaging in deplorable behavior towards a hospitalized newborn circulated online, causing widespread outrage. The baby’s family, who stumbled upon the distressing footage on social media, were appalled by the inhumane treatment their child had endured at the hands of these healthcare professionals.
In the video, a nurse is seen repeatedly grabbing the baby by the neck and forehead, callously manipulating the child’s face, while the other nurses present laugh in an utterly disturbing display. The heart-wrenching scenes captured on film have left viewers shocked and deeply disturbed.
Following the immediate identification and location of the three nurses who were employed at a maternity ward, the Health Affairs authority swiftly launched an investigation into the incident. Spokesperson Abdulhadi revealed that the authorities were able to trace the source of the video, leading to the identification of the nurses involved and the hospital where the appalling incident took place.
As a result of their abhorrent actions, the nurses were promptly suspended from their positions at the maternity hospital. In a severe measure of retribution, their medical licenses were revoked, effectively prohibiting them from practicing nursing in any other healthcare facility.
The father of the newborn, whose child had been receiving treatment for a urinary tract infection at the hospital for ten days, expressed his sheer horror upon discovering the widely circulated video on various social media platforms. In light of the distressing revelations, he is now demanding that the responsible nurses, as well as those who shared the video, face appropriate punishment for their actions.
In an effort to prevent similar incidents in the future, suggestions have been put forth to install closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras throughout the hospital. By implementing this surveillance system, it is hoped that any untoward behavior will be promptly detected and addressed, ensuring the safety and well-being of all patients, especially vulnerable newborns.
The shocking incident serves as a stark reminder that the majority of nurses play an indispensable role in the care of newborns, diligently providing essential services such as feeding, changing, bathing, administering medications, and monitoring vital signs. However, when these responsibilities are breached, it is imperative that swift action is taken to protect the most vulnerable members of society and maintain the integrity of the nursing profession.
