Nurse who only wore underwear under transparent PPE gown on male hospital ward in Russia because she was ‘too hot’ is disciplined (but the patients don’t seem upset!)
This naughty nurse is going viral.
A nurse in Russia was suspended from the hospital where she worked in Tula, 100 miles south of Moscow, after she arrived at her shift in the all-male coronavirus patient wing with no clothing save for her skivvies under her transparent personal protective equipment.
The unidentified staffer told her managers at Tula Regional Clinical Hospital that she was “too hot” to wear clothing underneath the head-to-toe vinyl gown, which protected her from contracting COVID-19. The incident was first reported by a local news outlet, the Tula Pressa newspaper.
While there were reportedly “no complaints” from her patients, hospital chiefs punished the nearly nude nurse for “non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing.”
The nurse claimed she did not realize that her underwear was showing through the PPE.
But hospital chiefs were not amused and punished the nurse for ‘non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing’.
Despite this, the regional health ministry reported that ‘a disciplinary sanction was applied to the nurse of the infectious diseases department who violated (uniform) requirements’.
Her chiefs at first said the woman was wearing ‘lingerie’ but later claimed she had a ‘swimming suit’ beneath the gown.
The nurse has not spoken publicly on the incident and the exact details of the discplinary action were not revealed.
One patient said there was no objection from men in the coronavirus ward while admitting there was ‘some embarrassment’.
A reader of local newspaper Tula News congratulated the nurse. ‘At least someone has a sense of humour in this gloomy, gloomy reality,’ said Sergey Ratnikov.
