Florida nurse holds live Q&A on Facebook after video goes viral

A cesspool of funky flu: ER nurse goes on epic rant about flu season

The emergency room nurse explains that yes, it is a bad flu season.

Katherine Lockler is nurse in Florida who, frustrated after an exhausting 12-hour shift, made a decision to post a video to social media in which she ranted about the flu season and offered up some hospital horror stories.

Lockler's clip has been shared on Facebook more than 94,000 times as of Friday morning.

Lockler said there was "a cesspool of funky flu at the ER right now", and pleaded with coaches to refrain from bringing their teams to the hospital, as well as for parents to avoid bringing their newborn babies and healthy children to the emergency room.

ER Dr. Armand Dorian says Nurse Lockler's concerns about emergency rooms are legitimate. "If you don't have a true emergency, this would not be the time to come to the emergency room", she says.

"I think there's a little bit of sarcasm in my voice because the instructions were given so many times and they were not received well", Lockler said. She uses a sarcastic tone and animated facial expressions at times to get her point across.

The pièce de résistance of the whole video may be Lockler's "magic trick" in which she demonstrates sneezing into her elbow, a recommended way to prevent the spread of germs so your sleeve catches the germs, not your hands (or everyone else around you, if you didn't bother to cover your mouth at all). In the video, titled "After Work Thoughts", she highlights the heightened risk of catching the flu this season and shares some sassy-toned tips to avoid getting yourself, and other people, sick. "Let me show you again in slow motion". Since the video has been released, she's seen patients take her advice - to wash your hands and to keep kids from visiting the hospital if it's not necessary.

Oh, and she also has a message for everyone yelling at her about the long wait in the emergency room these days: "If you ain't dying now, you're going to have to wait a little bit longer", she says. So guess what? Five flu's came in, 15 flu's walk out.

AN EXHAUSTED nurse launched a brazen six minute Facebook tirade educating her social media followers on how they can stop spreading the flu virus because "it seems people aren't aware".

"We aren't out of the woods yet, but there are steps everyone can take to fight the flu", Shuchat said. "Because guess what?" Lockler said.

Katherine Lockler has worked as a nurse for 10 years.

A mother of four, Lockler conceded that her tone in the video fell off somewhat like a mother conversing with her young children, yet she didn't intend to undermine anybody's insight in the video.

"I have a tendency to be mocking in all my talking, yet in the event that it's taken wrong I would apologize to that gathering that misheard my message in view of my tone. We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help".
