That is child abuse. Those nurses will surely pay a high price for doing that cruelty.

That is very cruel. I think they lack training to deal with babies. I hope that the government can provide more training for nurses, and after that, pay them very well.

That is appalling treatment of a baby. Nurses should be able to care for the children, not abuse them.

That is terrible, I cannot not believe anybody, especially with medical training could do such a thing. They should have their nose & mouth taped closed for such an act!

@alchemistrx I think any nurse doing that has no interest in the job but are only there for the paycheck

@Missmwngi ..It needs to be investigated. I know for sure that nurses here are overworked. They can be so exhausted that can fall down on feet. Hospitals say they can't afford more nurses. They need to accommodate them close by right? So that becomes an issue too. May be hospitals are trying to find an excuse because physicians get hefty pay packets, possibly at the expense of nurses. But I truly know it is in ER and neonatal...when they are taught they are told they will be looking after 4 patients. But when it comes to practical aspects it is 10 or even more. That is a lady, she has her physical limitations.

I hope that this is not a common practice and only one nurse was caught doing this. This is wrong.

They what? Oh my god that nurse should have to be reported and be send on a jail for doing that thing to the innocent babies. They have no sigle right to do that, there responsibility is to take care and look after for the babies health and not to sadistically mistreast them.
