MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two pediatric nurses at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis who posted a TikTok mocking children with gunshot wounds have been fired, the hospital said in a statement to ABC24 Friday.
The TikTok, reposted by user nurse_nya, showed two nurses telling the story of a child who came in with a gunshot wound but refused needles, mocking the child.
In a statement, Le Bonheur called the content “unacceptable,” and not a part of their culture of “patient and family-centered care.”
“We immediately took steps to address the situation to the full extent of our policy,” The hospital said in a statement. “The individuals are no longer working here.”
The hospital said they have taken steps to reinforce their social media policy and will continue regular social media training with staff.
