Tatiana Kulikova posted a bunch of gruesome snaps on local social media while she was on duty in an emergency ambulance next to the people she was supposed to help. One showed her showing the middle finger to an accident victim with the caption, “Another moron”.
Another one shows her sticking up two fingers to a heart attack patient was titled, “How I hate my job”.
After the sick pictures emerged emergency service officials launched an investigation, the health worker was suspended and eventually fired. Kulikova’s disturbing selfies have outraged locals who saw their family members treated in a such humiliating way. Kulikova has made no comment following the incident.
Commenting the incident local health campaigner Artem Golubev, 40, said, “It is clear that while she was taking these photographs she was not looking after her patients. She shows a callous disregard for the welfare of her patients, some of whom died after those pictures were taken.I would not be surprised if their families sue both her and the emergency services.”
This is not the first time when nurses make use of their patients’ vulnerability, earlier this year an Italian nurse was arrested on suspicion of killing 38 terminal patients as she had found them or their families annoying. One more male nurse chose a deadly way of demonstrating his resuscitation skills causing the deaths of 30 patients in Germany.
