An oncology nurse at Oregon’s Salem Health was put on administrative leave Saturday after she posted a TikTok video in which she bragged about flouting her state’s pandemic restrictions, the hospital told CNN.
The video, which has since been taken down, showed the nurse, wearing scrubs and a stethoscope around her neck, pretending to scream with a caption that read: “When my coworkers find out I still travel, don’t wear a mask when I am out, and let my kids have playdates.”
The hospital went on to distance themselves from the nurse’s comments, saying “We also want to assure you that this one careless statement does not reflect the position of Salem Health or the hardworking and dedicated caregivers who work here.”
The hospital said the nurse will be on administrative leave until an investigation that “will thoroughly and accurately ascertain the facts in this case” is complete.
CNN has not been able to reach her for comment.
