In a viral post circulating on social media, two nurses were caught slacking off while a bloodied man waited despite his father’s insistence for immediate medical attention.
The post contained two photos. The first shows the bloodied man while the second photo shows the two nurses, one sitting in a nonchalant manner while the other one was staring off into the distance.
The post infuriated netizens. Many posted violent reactions online, insisting that the nurses should be fired.
Thenaj Basa Todigu: “May mga nurse talagang ganyan lalo na sa public hospital experience q na yan hirap na hirap na c papa pero ang mga nurses dun nagseselfie pa sarap talaga batukan….,”
Geraldine Cuen: “Ang sama nyo…..duguan na yong Tao d nyo agad ginamot.mas inuna nyo pa yung cellphone kaysa buhay ng tao.inantay nyo p yata na maubusan sya ng dugo bago nyo sya gamutin.anong klaseng hospital yan……..”
However some netizens questioned the validity of the photos, saying it’s possible that the photos were fake and more evidence should surface before online backlash ruined the nurses’ careers.
Ezekiel Embalzado Zabala: “bago kau mag comment mak sure na legit ang nakikita nyo edit lang to masisira lang reputation ng mga nurse na yan sa pag papakalat ng maling info kayo naman mga admin check nyo naman if legit kasi kau mismo ang naninira sa kapwa nyo tao,.,”
One netizen clarified that the photos were real but the event transpired in a hospital in the Dominican Republic.
Div Zagun: “Lets all be true here. Wether this article is legit or not, it’s really happening that some nurses are insensitive when it comes to the needs of patient. But im not generalizing. Sana may cctv din ang management o hospital para alam kung sino kumikilos sa nagpapakasarap! Kawawa naman mga pasyente lalo na mga need na ng agarang lunas! Just my two cents!”
