Jacksonville Navy hospital apologizes for staff's 'inappropriate' photos of newborns

The exclusive video obtained by WJAX/WFOX appeared to show staff at Naval Hospital Jacksonville handling a newborn baby inappropriately.

The nurses posted videos and pictures to their Snapchat accounts that showed the women holding up a newborn and controlling their limbs to make them dance to a rap song.

The images were taken from Snapchat and posted to Facebook by concerned recipients.

Two nurses have been removed from duty at Naval Hospital Jacksonville, in Florida, after uploading images of themselves messing around with newborns to Snapchat.

Others are saying Trump may have been using the clever ploy of raising the specter of a withdrawal to gauge the South's reaction. Fischer wrote: "During this challenging time, we must demonstrate solidarity with our allies as they face significant threats".

In a statement Monday night, Naval Hospital Jacksonville said the images were "unacceptable, incredibly unprofessional, and can not be tolerated", and said the infant's parents have been notified. They have been removed from patient care and they will be handled by the legal system and military justice. Naval Hospital Jacksonville released a statement that reads in part "we have identified the staff members involved".

Both Snaps later went viral on the internet, thanks in part to a Facebook post originally created by one of Thompson's high school classmates condemning the nurses' actions.

It says: "We are aware of a video / photo posted online. We've notified the patient's parents". Elliott wrote "She is young, made a huge mistake". "I hope ppl keep talking about this until these girls are held accountable".

The two nurses were dismissed from their jobs after a whistle blower alerted the hospital to the posts.
