Four nurses were asked to go on leave after they uploaded a Tik Tok video recorded in special neo natal care unit (SNCU). This was done in the district headquarters hospital in Odisha’s Malkangiri. Post this, they were asked to go on leave, an official told NDTV.

The nurses were asked to go on leave by Malkangiri District Magistrate Manish Agarwal on the recommendation of the Chief District Medical Office (CDMO), Ajit Kumar Mohanty, the official said. An investigation committee has also been formed and proper actions will be taken after the probe. The four nurses named Ruby Ray, Tapasi Biswas, Swapna Bala and Nandini Ray were showcased by the CDMO, on Wednesday for extreme medical negligence while they were recording the video inside the SNCU, of the district headquarters hospital.

Tik Tok also introduced a number of names to stardom, as they grew popular with their videos on Tik Tok. Today, it claims more than 500 million registered users.

The four nurses, though admitted their mistake, also said that they recorded the videos only after the duty hours. Their mistake was that they did so in the official uniform, they admitted. The SNCU was particularly set up in the hospital after Malkangiri recorded high rate of infant mortality. Ajit Kumar Mohanty said that he probed and informed the collector and officers in the area. “They [nurses] will be given show-cause notice and 24-48 hours to respond on the matter,” Ajit Kumar Mohanty said, while adding that “the department will take action against them.”

Odisha Health Minister Nabakishore Das has also sought facts from the department. “I have asked for a report from the department, asking them the fact. They will investigate the matter. After I get a report from the department I’ll take appropriate action as per law,” the health minister said. In the uploaded video, the hospital beds and even a child patient can be seen, while nurses were seen singing and dancing in the video.

The Indian Government banned the App in April, keeping in view the negative effect that it is causing. Tik Tok is one of the world’s most popular Apps now and is used to create short videos with special effects. The court order that banned Tik Tok says TikTok enables “cultural degradation and pornography” and also cites concerns that young users on the platform were putting their privacy at risk. The order also extends the ruling to media outlets, banning them from using Tik Tok footage in their reporting.

Tik Tok also introduced a number of names to stardom, as they grew popular with their videos on Tik Tok. Today, it claims more than 500 million registered users. With over 13.2 million followers on Tik Tok, Jannat Zubair Rehmani is the most popular Tik Tok star in India.
