Going to college for a nursing degree is hard work, so most people who finally graduate take their positions very seriously and would never dream of getting into trouble.
Unfortunately, some of these newfound nurses are far from perfect angels. In fact, these nurses behaved so badly at work, that they got caught, humiliated, and some even went to prison for it.
You’d better hope that one of these naughty nurses isn’t on duty if you ever land yourself in the ER.
We Can See It All
We’re not sure exactly what this Russian nurse was thinking when she showed up to work one day in just a bra and panties.
Well, in her defense, she threw on a totally translucent PPE gown over her outfit of the day.
While technically she was adhering to the safety laws of the hospital (as she was fully covered, along with a full facemask), she was probably more of a danger to any patients with weak hearts.
Nurse By Day Model By Night
During the day she is a full-time Emergency Room nurse taking care of patients that come into the trauma center with life-threatening injuries and conditions.
On her off time, however, she is an Instagram model who is not afraid to show off a little (ok, a lot) of skin.
Hopefully her employer doesn’t get wind of her account, although it’s not private so it could happen any day now.
If you think this looks more like a mugshot that a photo out of the hospital floor, you’d be correct.
In a children’s hospital in Akron, Ohio, this nurse was caught stealing tons of opioids (fentanyl, to be exact).
How did she do it? Well, she would quietly move the drugs to the waste bin, and then smuggle them out with the trash.
You would never be able to tell with all of her baggy scrubs she puts on to go to work at the hospital, but this nurse is absolutely ripped.
She doesn’t let her coworkers know, but she can be found posing for bodybuilder photoshoots in next to nothing.
We don’t blame her though, if we had that body, we’d be doing the same thing.
Too Hot For Work
This Thai nurse was allegedly fired from her job at the hospital because she looked too hot in her uniform?
While we don’t disagree that she looks smokin’, it’s not exactly fair that she was removed because of how good she happened to look in her actual, hospital approved, work clothes.
Give a girl a break, she can’t help having perfect genes!
A Hair of All Colors
This nurse was body-shamed (well, at least hair shamed) by a cashier who didn’t like her rainbow locks or her tattoo located pretty low on her chest.
It was after a particularly long shift at the hospital that a nasty cashier took one look at this nurse and told her she was “unfit for her job” because of her colorful hair and her tattoo. Apparently, her boss disagrees.
Not Cooperating With Police
This nurse in Salt Lake City, Utah caused a huge uprising at the hospital where she works when she did not allow police to draw blood from a patient who was totally unconscious and unable to consent.
She was arrested kicking and screaming and was removed from the building.
In the end, the city ruled that she was correct and that the police were violating policy.
It’s one thing to get caught sending nude pics of yourself, and they fall into the wrong hands.
t’s another thing entirely when you’re a nurse and you get caught taking and sending nude pictures of your unconscious male patients and sending them to your friends as a joke.
That’s what happened with this nurse, and she was eventually caught and her title was revoked, and rightfully so.
Too Soon, Read The Room
This nurse who worked at New York Presbyterian Hospital uploaded a photo to Instagram that she would regret forever.
After tending to a trauma victim, a man who was hit by a subway car, she posted a picture of the aftermath of the room, which was obviously a complete, bloody mess.
To add insult to injury (literally speaking) she captioned it: “#Man vs 6 train”.
This prankster nurse went around flashing the entire hospital, but not in the way that you think.
She purchased a bodysuit with a man’s hairy chest design on it, pecs and all, and wore it one day to her shift underneath her scrubs.
No one was any the wiser until she started lifting up her shirt for everyone to see.
This nurse wanted to be featured on the famous meme site, The Chive, so she snuck into the bathroom during her shift to take some pretty hot pics before her boss came looking for her.
She made sure to have The Chive’s slogan abbreviated on a card tucked into her scrubs.
Attack The Boss
These nurses from Panchkula India were not about to put up with being sexually harassed by a doctor at their hospital.
When one day he went too far, a group of them burst into his room and beat him with their fists for his awful behavior.
Hit and Run
Cerys Price, a 28 year old nurse, got into a fatal car crash while driving home from a vacation in Mexico. The other drive, an older man, was killed instantly from the crash.
It was discovered, while she was being treated at the hospital for her injuries, that she was high on Tramadol, a heavy painkiller, and was in no state to drive.
28-year-old Adele Rennie, an ex-nurse, was detained and arrested after she was caught posing as a man catfishing women and convincing them to send her nude photos of themselves.
She was arrested at 27 for the same crime, and a few months after her release was arrested again for the same crime.
This one is really horrifying. A nurse in Italy killed almost 40 patients before eventually getting caught, saying that they annoyed here. She killed them by injecting them with deadly potassium chloride.
In this photo, she is posing with one of the patients she had just murdered.
If she wasn’t in a murdering mood that day, she would give her patients laxatives at the end of her shift, so the next nurses would have to deal with the mess.
Protesting a Protest
Life has not been easy for anymore in 2020 and beyond, as the world was put into crisis mode when a global pandemic swept across every country.
In some of them, however, a lot of citizens were unhappy about the lockdowns and mask laws that came into effect to try and stop the spread of the virus.
27-year-old nurse, Lauren Leander, attended one of the anti-lockdown protests in her scrubs, to show how it affects hospital staff. A powerful statement.
Mama I’m In Love With a Criminal
Not all nurses work in a hospital or in someone’s private home. In fact, there are many nurses who work at correctional facilities and other detention locations.
The nurses who work in these places have specific guidelines on what they can and cannot do or say to their patients.
In the case of 37-year-old Latonya Hickbotto, she went against the rules and started a full-on relationship with one of the prisoners. She was caught sending him some racy photos of herself and was immediately arrested.
A Mother’s Worst Nightmare
This neo-natal nurse might look like a sweet girl in the picture, but she is pure evil.
Lucy Letby, a 30-year-old nurse working in the infant-care unit at Countess of Chester Hospital in Chester, UK., was arrested after she was charged with the killing of 8 premature newborn babies.
They also found that she attempted to take the lives of at least 9 more.
Illegal Candid Camera
Patients often have to be wearing fewer clothes than they are used to for medical staff to check them out, so it’s important that they feel comfortable and safe with the doctors and nurses who work on them.
Pennsylvania nurse, Kane Mckeesport worked at an elderly care home and was often tasked with giving her patients baths and medications.
Unfortunately, for some sick reason, she had been taking nude photos of her patients and sending them to her boyfriend. She was eventually caught and arrested.
She Must Be Blind
Carly Louise Stewart WAS a nurse up until recently when she was fired from her job for making a pretty bold (and very infuriating) claim in the middle of Trafalgar Square in London.
Although she’s been working in an elderly care home throughout the pandemic, she took to the streets to claim that it didn’t exist and that the whole thing is a hoax.
She protested the lockdown and said that she’s seen “no evidence” of any deadly virus.
You Know TikTok Is Public Right?
It’s pretty common knowledge that the mobile Dance app, TikTok, is free and completely public.
So why then, do people keep getting themselves in trouble with their coworkers, friends, and families by spewing stupid information that will get them in trouble?
Salem Health nurse, Ashley Grames, went to TikTok to let everyone know how she never wore a mask outside of work, and neither did her kids. Of course, someone at the hospital got wind of it, and she was placed on administrative leave and being investigated.
At Least She Was A Nurse At SOME Point
During the COVID-19 Pandemic, social media influencer, Miki Rai, gained a huge TikTok following on her content which highlighted her life as a frontline nurse.
However, after a few months, her followers started becoming suspicious of her working from home all the time, and not actually as a nurse. They claimed she was just trying to “capitalize on a pandemic” by pretending to be a frontline worker.
In the end, it turned out that she had taken a few months off, but she really was a nurse (just not a frontline nurse during COVID-19).
She Infected Patients On Purpose
31-year-old nurse, Cora Weberg, is in some serious trouble.
Authorities caught her stealing injectable narcotic drugs from her place of work (Puyallup’s Good Samaritan Hospital), and knowingly infected her patients with Hepatitis C!
She was caught when hospital staff noticed her taking more narcotics than her patients were prescribed, as well as not giving her patients their full dose of medication. She is now facing second-degree assault charges.
Their Outfits Are Unprofessional?
A whole slew of nurses from all around the world took to Instagram to post pictures of themselves in bikinis following a particularly misogynistic study made about their outfits outside of work.
The study was published in the Journal of Vascular Surgery and it commented on how doctors and nurses posting pictures in bikinis on social media was very unprofessional.
These nurses weren’t having it, and explained in their posts how sexist it was. The study has since been unpublished.
38 -year-old nurse Kimberly Clark Saenz, was working at a DaVita Dialysis clinic when she was found doing something particularly disturbing.
Saenz was discovered adding bleach to her patients’ kidney dialysis fluids, killing 5 of them and severely injuring 5 more.
She was arrested and charged with capital murder, a year after the discovery.
Snogging The School Nurse
Angela Beik was a 47-year-old school nurse who worked at Linn Mar High School in Marion, Iowa.
At least she used to be, up until she started bragging to her colleagues that she and a 16-year-old boy were having “make-out sessions” at school, and how she had him send her inappropriate videos of himself.
She was imprisoned for 180 and fired from her position at the school.
Don’t Blame The Babies
Two Naval Nurses Allyson Thompson and Joanie Barrett were fired from their positions after their super inappropriate SnapChats were discovered.
The two naval corpsmen were taking photos at Naval Hospital Jacksonville in Jacksonville, FL. with some newborn babies.
The photos show them flipping them off, holding them harshly, and posing them dangerously for pictures.
Riot At The Capitol
As much as we’d love to think that everyone who went to storm the Capital was uneducated and crazy, a lot of the rioters were people we interact with and even need services from on a daily basis.
Lori Vinson, a nurse at Ascension St. Vincent in Indiana, was fired from her position at the hospital for going to riot at the Capital building.
She doesn’t think she did anything wrong and has “no regrets”.
Two nurse’s aides, Cassie Moses and Symara Rakestraw, made quite the oversight when the girls decided to post a picture from work on Facebook with a not so nice caption.
They posed with an empty gurney and said “felt cute, might drop your grandma later”.
While the picture and caption were obviously meant as a joke, a lot of people were extremely offended by the post, and made it known in the comments. The nurse’s aides were fired.
She Should Be Ashamed
This nurse is named Faith Linthicum, and she set up a Go Fund Me page because she was fired from her job. Why?
Because of horribly hateful comments she posted in response to a police shooting of a Black 22 year old man named Stephon Clark.
She said that he deserved to be shot “for being stupid.” He was shot 8 times and was completely unarmed.
