An outrage sparked in Saudi Arabia after a group of Nurses filmed themselves squashing a newborn baby’s face and giggling/laughing while doing it.
The video showed one of the nurses grasping the baby by its neck and forehead and cruelly squashing the helpless baby’s face as her colleagues giggled.
The parents of the new born baby became aware and angry when they saw the video online. The baby was admitted in the hospital for ten days because he had a urinary tract infection. The infant’s parents were unhappy and shocked to see the inhuman treatment of their baby circulating on social media.
This created an angry outburst in the country and Taif Health Affairs spokesman, Abdulhadi Al-Rabie said “The Health Affairs investigated the source of the video and was able to identify the nurses who appeared in the video and the hospital where the incident took place.’
Three members of staff at a maternity hospital in Taif, Saudi Arabia, were soon identified and tracked down; the nurses whose names are withheld were immediately suspended after they were tracked down, their medical licenserevoked and they are banned from practising nursing in other health departments.
