Nurses removed from duty investigated over 'sick' pictures with newborn babies

The Naval Jacksonville Hospital announced they have "removed" several employees after images and videos surfaced of nurses inappropriately handling newborn babies and making obscene gestures, per the Miami Herald.

One of the nurses, who worked for Naval Hospital Jacksonville in Florida, took a Snapchat picture of herself giving the middle finger to a baby.

A Facebook post, shared over 180,000 times, depicts a hospital staff member flipping off a baby with the caption "How I now feel about these mini Satans". In another the two nurses made the newborn dance in a rap video, reported abc6.

"I'm just sharing someone's post in hopes that these childish girls get reprimanded and lose their jobs", Shellito wrote on Facebook.

The hospital calls the images outrageous, unacceptable and incredibly unprofessional.

The sick employees were "removed from patient care", the hospital said.
