'It is a cesspool of funky flu'

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.

After a 12-hour night shift, nurse Katherine Lockler was so frustrated with the way some people have handled the outbreak that she recorded a video from her auto. In the humorous video titled "After Work Thoughts", which has more than 5 million views on Facebook, Lockler recounts recent moments in the hospital that have made her cringe, while of course changing the names to "protect the not-so-innocent".

Lockler went on to say that if you do get sick, "wash your stinkin' hands so you don't get all your babies sick!"

ER Dr. Armand Dorian says Nurse Lockler's concerns about emergency rooms are legitimate.

In the almost seven-minute video, she also discusses easy flu prevention methods.

Part of what's made the almost seven-minute-long video so polarizing was the sarcastic inflection and animated facial expressions and gestures Lockler used at times to get her point across.

"Watch this, I'm going to teach you a magic trick, it's unbelievable", Katherine says.


The mum-of-four launches her tirade saying she will try her best to "act perky", before she said: "We're in the middle of something called flu season". Then she repeats it, in slow motion.

Lockler also showed her viewers how to sneeze properly and minimize the risk of spreading the flu.

Slightly losing her patience as she described the current situation in a hospital emergency room she said: "Here are some ideas on how to treat the flu at home".

"Some of them are not true emergencies, but they're waiting along with the flu right next to them".

As flu season ramps up, a Florida nurse had a message for potential visitors to the emergency room: If it's not an emergency, don't show up. Her reasoning? If you go in there for one ailment, you'll probably catch another, namely the flu. "But they're waiting along with the flu right next to them, so guess what?" "So, guess what? Five flus came in, 15 flus walk out".

Lockler told the News-Journal that her tone might have been condescending, but she was only trying to send a message. "But they'll be back!" Given the frustrating nature of her job, and the lack of basic common sense exhibited about public health, being sarcastic seems like a way to get the message across, especially if polite health and wellness posters apparently aren't doing the trick. In a briefing Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the flu outbreak is responsible for a total of at least 53 child deaths so far this season. "The message is still right on the money, but if the tone was offensive, that was not the intention". "We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help".
