Atlanta’s Emory Hospital Midtown fires 4 labor and delivery nurses after they shared their “icks” about maternity patients on TikTok shared by Hannah Halia Hinton
Atlanta’s Emory Hospital Midtown has fired four labor and delivery nurses after they shared their “icks” about maternity patients on TikTok.
Emory University’s hospital is apologizing after several of its nurses made a “disrespectful” TikTok sharing their “icks” about labor and delivery patients.
The since-deleted video went viral on social media and shows several nurses complaining about various behaviors from patients.
“My ick when you come in for your induction talking about ‘can I take a shower or eat?,” one nurse says.
“My ick is when you ask how much the baby weighs and It’s still in your hands,” another nurse says.
“Another ick, when you’re going room to room between one baby mama and your other baby mama,” a third nurse said.
In a statement on social media, Emory Healthcare condemned the video that was made by “former employees” at Emory University Hospital Midtown in Atlanta, Georgia.
“We are aware of a TikTok video that included disrespectful and unprofessional comments about maternity patients at Emory University Hospital Midtown. We have investigated the situation and taken appropriate actions with the former employees responsible for the video,” the statement read.
“This video does not represent our commitment to patient-and family-centered care and falls far short of the values and standards we expect every member of our team to hold and demonstrate,” Emory Healthcare said. “At no time should our patients ever feel they are not being treated with care and respect. Every patient at Emory Healthcare deserves to be cared for by a compassionate, experienced team in a comfortable and safe environment.”
Four labor and delivery nurses at an Atlanta hospital came under fire over a TikTok video in which they shared the things that annoy them about expecting mothers and their families.
“My ick is when you come in for your induction, talking about, ‘Can I take a shower and eat?’” one nurse says.
The nurses at Emory University Hospital Midtown were participating in a popular trend where users share their “icks” or turnoffs about a person. The TikTok trend originally began as a way for someone to describe why they stopped dating another person.
In the video, another nurse says her “ick” is when the mother says she doesn’t want pain medication “but you are at an eight out of 10 pain.” Another nurse says: “The dad comes outside and asks for a paternity test right outside the room door.”
One of the nurses talks about family members coming up to the nurse’s station “every five minutes” and the father “going room to room between one baby mama and your other baby mama.”
Emory Healthcare said the video was “disrespectful and unprofessional,” and does not “represent our commitment to patient-family-centered care.”
“We have investigated the situation and taken appropriate actions with the former employees responsible for the video,” the company said in an Instagram post.
Employees oversharing on TikTok — and subsequently getting fired — is not uncommon, with workers from the tech and education industries revealing their abrupt dismissals.
Meanwhile, the #IckChallenge — which encourages TikTokers to tattle their turnoffs — has earned 3.3 million views.
