Don't be flu-clueless; listen to this nurse

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

Lockler, who works at multiple emergency rooms in the Northwest Florida area, said she sat down in her vehicle after a 12-hour shift at work on Saturday with the intent to send a message from a health care professional's perspective.

In the video, Ms. Lockler highlights the severity of this year's flu season and encourages people to take special precautions when visiting a hospital, including washing their "stinking hands". Lockler says in the video, before pretending to sneeze into her arm, covering both her nose and mouth at the same time, in order to demonstrate. Don't bring your kid's sports team, don't bring your "healthy children" and definitely don't bring your newborn babies, Lockler said. "And if you don't have what I call a true emergency, this would not be a time to come to the emergency room". In the video she comically shares her experiences from the night before while offering some much-needed tips to those she witnessed breaking flu-spreading etiquette. She recorded this video about the trials and tribulations of combating the flu and the basic lack of awareness many people exhibit.

She added that between 25 to 30 patients are sitting for hours in the emergency waiting rooms.

In the seven-minute video, Lockler also provides her audience with some ideas of how you can treat yourself at home.

"It's wonderful 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. "It's incredible to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hands and - I watch - no one grabs the hand sanitizer".

Lockler also showed her viewers how to sneeze properly and minimize the risk of spreading the flu.

"It was a plea to protect you and others against this terrible flu", she explained to Inside Edition.

Four hundred to 600 milligrams is an okay dosage for adults, she said. Perhaps the most memorable moment of dialogue is when she advises people to simply wash their hands.

"There is a cesspool of funky flu at the E.R. right now", she said, requesting people to not come to the emergency room if they necessarily don't need to, especially to visit others.

In an interview with the Pensecola News Journal, Lockler said she made the video to shed light on some common bad health behaviors she was seeing in the ER. "Half of them don't realize they have the flu yet - they'll be back". The CDC reports that we're in the middle of the worst flu season in nearly a decade, with widespread cases of the infection in every state save for Hawaii. She went on to apologize to anyone offended by her tone, but insists that regardless of how she may have come off the message is still "right on the money".
