Emory University apologizes after nurses made ‘disrespectful’ TikToks about new parents and ‘labour and delivery issues’

  • A group of delivery nurses appear to have lost their jobs after posting a viral TikTok where they shared what patients do to give them ‘the dick’
  • “The ick” is a term that was coined to describe a “sudden feeling of revulsion and total abandonment from someone you’re dating”
  • The video was posted by a now-deleted @hanhinton account where four Emory University nurses explained what patients do to tick them off
  • One said, while wearing university-branded scrubs: ‘My problem is when you ask me how much the baby weighs, and it’s still in your hands’

A group of delivery nurses appear to have lost their jobs after posting a viral TikTok where they shared what patients do to give them ‘the ick’.

“The ick” is a term that was coined to describe a “sudden feeling of revulsion and total abandonment from someone you’re dating”, although these nurses seem to have brought it to the scene of work.

Unlike major red flags like violence or infidelity, “the ick” generally refers to “little habits or behavior that suddenly become impossible to ignore.”

The video was posted by a now largely deleted @hanhinton account where four nurses from Emory University in Georgia explained what patients do to tick them off.

One said, while wearing university-branded scrubs: ‘My problem is when you ask me how much the baby weighs, and it’s still in your hands.’

Another said: “Saying you don’t want pain meds, no epidurals, but you have eight out of ten pains.”

The icks weren’t always about the patients, with one saying: ‘When the dad comes out and asks for a paternity test right outside the bedroom door.’

Commenters immediately jumped on them, with one saying, according to Buzzfeed, “My problem is when people work in healthcare and don’t have compassion for people.”

The school, via Emory Healthcare, said the four nurses are now “former” employees, although it’s unclear if they were directly fired because of the video.

They posted on Instagram: “We are aware of the TikTok video which included disrespectful and unprofessional comments about maternity patients.”

Emory added, “This video does not represent our commitment to patient and family-centered care and does not uphold the values ​​and standards we expect each member of our team to hold and demonstrate.”

The original account, @hanhinton, has been deleted and reactivated with only one video remaining on the feed.

However, the video appears to have gone viral enough for the university to take action, with one commenter saying: “Such a disgrace to all patients”. I would never want my nurse to be like that. Nasty.’
