When you leave your baby in the care of medical professionals, you expect them to act like professionals. You want them to care for your child. They will, hopefully, treat them with respect and dignity. You don’t expect to see your child star in the latest viral video. Sadly, that was not the case for one Saudi family. A group of nurses were fired in Saudi Arabia after they took video of a newborn baby in their care. The video shows the nurses manhandling the infant. The boy was in the hospital for ten days due to an urinary tract infection, but received much more than his treatment.
At one point a nurse held the baby, one hand around his chin, the other on the top of his head. Then she proceeded to squish the baby’s head, making his face squish together.
It looks so horrible! Babies heads are so soft! Why would you do that?! The baby doesn’t seem too happy about it either. The other nurses watching, however, were clearly heard laughing in the video. One of which posted a video of the baby online. That was a big mistake. This is the internet – baby videos go viral. What’s more, the comments can get brutal.
“All three nurses should thank God I was not the baby’s mother,” one user wrote. “I’d squeeze all your faces much harder.”
While the nurse might not be afraid of a random person’s comment, she should have considered what the boy’s actual parents might do to her. Before too long, she’d find out. The parents of the boy found the video online and immediately reported it to Taif Health Affairs.
“The Health Affairs investigated the source of the video and was able to identify the nurses who appeared in the video and the hospital where the incident took place,” a said according to Daily Mail.
While the nurses aren’t named, it is reported that they have all been fired. What’s more, their nursing licenses were revoked and they can no longer work in any health department.
Needless to say, the parents were shocked to find that their son on social media. How would you react to something like this?
