Nurse's Video on the Flu

This Nurse's Flu Video Explains Why Healthy People Should Avoid Hospitals Like the Plague

After Work Thoughts

Posted by Katherine Smith Lockler on Saturday, January 27, 2018

Katherine Lockler, a mom and nurse, decided to spread a little awareness on all things flu-related in a now-viral Facebook video, and frankly, it's the wake-up call everyone needs during this devastating flu season. And although she cracks plenty of jokes, her advice is as serious as a heart attack.

She hits on everything from why healthy people should avoid the hospital at all costs to the effectiveness of Tamiflu to why the wait to see an ER doctor is always so damn long. Oh, and if you're wondering how much Tylenol you should take to get a fever down, she explains that in detail, too.

She concludes by reminding people to be kind to the doctors and nurses working their tails off to get them healthy. Despite being on their feet for 12 hours straight and getting constantly yelled at for the long wait, they're the ones who are willingly entering the "cesspool of funky flu" every single day to get you back to feeling 100 percent.
