They were able to identify these nurses who appeared on the said video as well as the hospital where this incident took place.
Once these nurses were identified, they were immediately suspended from their positions. Their identities are still being kept private but their licenses were revoked and banned from practicing nursing even in other health departments. Because of this, Walid Al-Zahrani, a Saudi journalist took action for these nurses to be named and prosecuted.
By putting them in the public eye, the journalist is hoping that they will understand that a persons’ life is not a joke.
Many have suggested for the hospital to set up CCTV cameras to prevent the similar cruelty to happen in the future. The Taif Affairs spokesperson revealed that if these nurses are found guilty of the documented abuse in the video, they will be facing severe penalties for their actions. This instance might have been a shocking content in social media, but this allowed the authorities to remove these abusive people from their positions.
They do not deserve their nurses’ caps and their license to treat people. Nurses should be caring and looking after their patients’ well-being – including the babies. These little angels are defenseless and they are the most vulnerable in this kind of abuse. As a parent, you should never feel unsafe in leaving your child in the hands of a medical professional.
