I came across this news item in two different media outlets, and pulled this blurb from the NY Post.
If you go to their Web Site, you can see the offending nurses doing the things mentioned in the story. They apparently aren't smart enough to realize that what you post on social media (with your face showing) can, and will be used against you.
Their behavior is deplorable. I can't imagine how the parents of babies subjected to these two and their outlandish and unethical behavior must feel.
Nurses at a naval hospital in Florida have been booted from their posts after sick photos went viral of them rudely posing with newborn babies and referring to the tots as “mini Satans.”
One of the pics posted to Snapchat shows Allyson Thompson, a corpsman at Naval Hospital Jacksonville, flipping the bird to a baby who’s wrapped in a blanket, along with the caption, “How I currently feel about these mini Satans,” [COLOR=#cc3333]according to Action News Jacksonville[/COLOR]
In another photo, Thompson grins as she holds a baby up by its arms. The pic was shared by a woman who identified the employee as a “navy nurse” who made the newborn dance to rap music, [COLOR=#cc3333]First Coast News reported[/COLOR]
Thompson and another nurse, Joanie Barrett, were identified as the culprits in [COLOR=#cc3333]an online post[/COLOR]

Quote from TriciaJ
I found a FB post that identifies one of the culprits as a corpsman and it states specifically that she is not a registered nurse. It stated the status of the other one was unknown. In fact, the posts uses quotation marks around the word "nurses".
If they aren't indeed nurses, why is the term being used at all? Even in quotation marks, if it isn't accurate to label them as nurses, then they need to be labeled at whatever position they hold, i.e. CNA, enlisted military, etc.
No matter what their title, their behavior is deplorable. But I will feel slightly better if RN doesn't follow their last name.
