Katherine Lockler, Nurse in Florida, Actually Bugged by Flu

Local nurse's flu rant goes viral

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.

In a video, which has been seen very almost 5 million times on Facebook, Katherine Lockler of Milton, Fla., shares her dissatisfaction over how people have taken care of the unusually brutal flu season.

"It is a cesspool of funky flu at the ER right now..." Please don't bring your healthy children in - especially your newborn babies!

"And if you don't have a true life emergency, this would not be the time to come to the emergency room", explaining that there's consistently dozens of patients waiting at the hospital for hours without flu, who go on to leave with it because they're sitting next to others who are infected.

Lockler, who works at numerous emergency rooms in the Northwest Florida territory, said she sat down in her auto after work on Saturday with the plan to communicate something specific from a medicinal services proficient's point of view. It's great. And guess what?

But in case you've already caught the disease, Lockler had some ideas of how you can treat yourself at home.

In April of 2017, Trump ordered an attack on a Syrian airbase after a chemical attack blamed on the Syrian regime in Khan Sheikhun.

"And wash your stinking hands so you don't make your babies sick!" Better yet, before treating the ER as a first option, get yourself some over-the-counter Tylenol or ibuprofen and take dosages big enough - 400 to 600 milligrams for men or women or 800 for "a big dude" - to wipe out the fever. She says that not only exposed the other players, but everyone they come into contact with. "Well, of course it didn't!" "If someone coughs near you and then you inhale it through your nose or through your mouth you can get the flu", she says.

"It's killed some people", she said.

"Watch this, I'm going to teach you a magic trick, it's awesome", Katherine says. "We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help", she says.

"When you walk in, there's hand sanitizer and they give you a mask and gloves", Moret said. Given the frustrating nature of her job, and the lack of basic common sense exhibited about public health, being sarcastic seems like a way to get the message across, especially if polite health and wellness posters apparently aren't doing the trick. But if someone comes "in who's bleeding to death, or they're not breathing, you're going to have to wait a little longer", she said, adding that hospital staff do an "eye ball assessment" and can tell that "you ain't dying now".

"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".
