The Navy has fired employees in a Florida naval hospital following social networking photos surfaced showing them mocking newborn babies, and also the Navy Surgeon General has issued strict new advice, including a ban on worker cell phones and a “stand down” for ethics training.
“As health care professionals, we’re entrusted with the lives and well-being of all people who have volunteered to defend our freedom, including their families,” Vice Adm. Forrest Faison said in a message issued this morning.

“We owe them the very best care and compassion that our country can provide. We also owe them our unqualified respect.”
Widely circulated Snapchat photos show a Navy nurse giving the middle finger into a newborn in a bassinet with the caption, “How I currently feel about such miniature Satans,” the Associated Press reported.

The Snapchat post also said the “navy nurse” and her friend made a infant dance to rap music.
Welcome to The Intel, a blog examining this day’s hot news
The Navy is currently scrambling to reassure patients, including expectant mothers.

Faison ordered all officers to ensure that no extra patient photos exist on social networking and to personally contact mothers and moms using them to reassure.
In addition, he prohibited all private cell phones in areas.
All Navy medical employees will go through all-hands sessions within the next two days, Faison said, “to review our oaths, our pledges, our motives for serving.”
