Social media users were disgusted with the footage of the incident, prompting responses such as: ‘How dare they do this?’
“All three nurses should thank God I was not the baby’s mother. I’d squeeze all your faces much harder.’
While the appearance of this sort of content on social media is shocking, in this instance it allowed authorities to remove unsavory people from a position where they were endangering the lives of defenseless children. Newborns count among the most vulnerable within society, so ensuring they receive appropriate care is an issue of paramount importance. No parents should feel unsafe leaving their children in the hands of medical professionals.
