The petition, which had garnered almost 2,700 signatures by Friday morning, stated that the nurse "posted an wonderful video to Facebook regarding the flu and how it is spread along with great tips on home treatment". Please don't bring your healthy children in, especially your newborn babies into the emergency room.
Lockler also warned healthy people to avoid emergency rooms. "If you don't have what I call a true emergency, this would not be the time to come to the emergency room".
Some portion of what's influenced the nearly seven-minute-to long video so polarizing was the snide enunciation and energized outward appearances and signals Lockler utilized now and again to express what is on her mind. Lockler says in the video, before pretending to sneeze into her arm, covering both her nose and mouth at the same time, in order to demonstrate.
"Here are some thoughts if you don't mind me sharing", she continues. One local nurse has gotten so frustrated with the way some people have handled the abnormally harsh season that she recorded a video from her auto after a long day of work to vent.

Oh, and she also has a message for everyone yelling at her about the long wait in the emergency room these days: "If you ain't dying now, you're going to have to wait a little bit longer", she says. "Don't bring people with problems or kids because the flu affects them more aggressively". "It's awesome", she said as she then pretends to sneeze into her arm.
She told the Pensacola News Journal that the video was meant to send a message from a health care professional's perspective. "Glad you're educating people and everything you said is true". Five flus came in, 15 flus walk out.
"Please don't come in and say 'I have a fever and I had one Tylenol and it didn't do nothing.'" she said.
"I think there's a little bit of sarcasm in my voice because the instructions were given so many times and they were not received well", Lockler said.

"I have a tendency to be mocking in all my talking, yet in the event that it's taken wrong I would apologize to that gathering that misheard my message in view of my tone". (This happens every year, but it seems more real when it happens to you or somebody you know.) But the flu vaccine is still working. "The message is still flawless, yet in the event that the tone was hostile, that was not the goal". "We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help".
