Florida hospital workers fired over disturbing photos calling newborns ‘mini Satans’
Employees at the Naval Hospital Jacksonville were caught posting photos of babies they were posing and flipping off, calling them “mini Satans.” Now that hospital is revealing the staffers have been terminated.
First Coast News in Jacksonville broke the story of a friend who saw the photos on Snapchat and posted them to Facebook. A second photo shows a “navy nurse” and her friend forcing the baby to dance to music.
Now the hospital is taking action.
“We are aware of a video/ photo posted online,” said Jeanne Casey, the Public Affairs Officer at Naval Hospital Jacksonville. “It’s outrageous, unacceptable, incredibly unprofessional, and cannot be tolerated. We have identified the staff members involved. They have been removed from patient care and they will be handled by the legal system and military justice. We’re in the process of notifying the patient”s parents.”
Here are the photos that surfaced, with faces blurred for privacy.
