'It is a cesspool of funky flu'

Local nurse's flu rant goes viral

"Watch this. I'm going to teach you a magic trick. It's awesome." She filmed herself fake sneezing into the inside of her elbow - a move that's commonly recommended by health professionals and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "Let me show you again, in slow motion!" she is heard saying, before repeating the move.

"Right now, we have up to 25 to 30 patients sitting for hours in the emergency room waiting room", Lockler said in the video.

"If a team member of a softball team is sick or injured, you do not bring the entire softball team in to check on them because guess what?" "You just got 15 new vectors, or carriers of the flu by them all walking in". So please don't bring your team in. "My hands didn't because it's fantastic to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hand and I watch".

She told the Pensacola News Journal that the video was meant to send a message from a health care professional's perspective. She says that not only exposed the other players, but everyone they come into contact with.

So if you see a doctor or nurse, thank them for the work they're doing, Lockler asked.

"Some of them (were not) true emergencies", Lockler said in the video.

As is the case with most viral Internet videos, Lockler's recording, titled "After Work Thoughts", was received positively and negatively. "I tend to be sarcastic in all my speaking, but if it's taken wrong I would definitely apologize to that group that misheard my message because of my tone. The message is still flawless, yet in the event that the tone was hostile, that was not the goal".

The CDC reported that since the beginning of the year, seven children have died of influenza and related complications.

She noted that half of the children who've been hospitalized with flu this season did not have underlying medical problems like asthma.

This year's flu season has proved to be particularly challenging across the U.S. As of January 26, there's been 37 pediatric deaths, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The video, called "After Work Thoughts", has been shared almost 89,000 times on Facebook and viewed by more than 4.6 million people.

A Florida hospital nurse is mad as heck and she's not going to take it anymore. The Florida Board of Nursing was not immediately able to verify that claim.

Lockler, a mother of four and a healthcare professional for almost 18 years, said she had just finished a 12-hour night shift when she recorded her almost seven-minute video, The Pensacola News-Journal reported. "Glad you're educating people and everything you said is true". "We're putting ourselves into the thick of some nasty germs to help".
