Consequently, the management of the Royal MMR Hospital, where the two nurses worked, were shocked and appalled by the fact the two nurses “chose to do Facebook Live while at work and responded to comments at the expense of patients awaiting to seek health care”.
The two nurses were reportedly sanctioned and some unconfirmed reports stated that they had been sacked from their workplace.
