Miami Hospital Nurse Posts Disturbing Photos, Captions Of NICU Baby On Social Media – CBS Miami
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Jackson Health System employee is on administrative vacation following troubling posts on social media that appear to mock a baby in the neonatal intensive care unit.
Out of respect for the baby and the baby’s family, CBS4 has decided not to share the pictures in full. Instead, the photos have been cropped to show only the captions:

The first reading: “My night went great, then boom!”
The other read: “Your entrails are presented in such a way that they are inside, not outside of the baby” and it was followed by “#gastroschisis”.
Gastroschisis is a birth defect of the abdomen in which the baby’s intestines are exposed.
The posts were in accounts called Sierra Samuels, a nurse at JMH.

Miami litigation attorney David Weinstein said that some privacy is expected when in a private area, especially a hospital.
“In addition to the general HIPPA violation that we would be investigating here, there is a sense of decency about the rights and expectations we all have of our likeness and our pictures,” Weinstein said.
