  • A cesspool of funky flu: ER nurse goes on epic rant about flu season

But now the video has spread, like the flu, across the country with over 5 million views and counting. "It's great. They'll be back". Please don't bring your healthy children in - especially your newborn babies! Frustrated after a long shift, one ER nurse has gone viral for her frank take on educating people about avoiding the flu.

But Katherine insists she didn't mean to undermine anyone's intelligence, she just wanted people to understand how they can take the correct precautions to get themselves disinfected.

"And if you don't have a true life emergency, this would not be the time to come to the emergency room", explaining that there's consistently dozens of patients waiting at the hospital for hours without flu, who go on to leave with it because they're sitting next to others who are infected.

In the video, Lockler gives a strained smile as she offers ideas for avoiding spreading flu, and shows how to sneeze safely by placing one's face against a sleeve at a bent elbow. So guess what? Five flu's came in, 15 flu's walk out.

Google's rise helps Alphabet post $32.32 billion in Q4 2017 revenue
Google's parent company Alphabet has revealed its financial report for both the fourth quarter of 2017 and the entire fiscal year. The majority of Google's business comes from advertising, which accounted for $27 billion in revenues for the just-ended quarter.

Flu season is well under way, bringing with it plenty of people suffering through terrible symptoms, and even more medical professionals wishing that the general public would take better safety precautions.

Speaking hypothetically, Lockler suggested that folks refrain from bringing healthy people into the ER, as this only increases their chances of catching and spreading the flu.

"If a team member of a softball team is sick or injured, you do not bring the entire softball team in to check on them because guess what?" "I'm gonna' teach ya'll a magic trick - it's unbelievable".

In fact, if you aren't sick, just stay home, she advises.

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

"It's fantastic to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hand, and I watch no one grab the hand sanitizer that's only every three feet in the ER", she said. "And instead of the dad receiving what a nurse of 10 years is sharing with him, he said, 'Eh, it's no big deal, it'll build his immune system.' So there's a lack of understanding and a lack of interest in knowing what to do to protect themselves sometimes".

"I think there's a little bit of sarcasm in my voice because the instructions were given so many times and they were not received well", Lockler said. It may not have been her intention, but she is thrilled that her important message is getting out. (This happens every year, but it seems more real when it happens to you or somebody you know.) But the flu vaccine is still working. "We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help".
