• Hospital staff wears bra and panties under see-through PPE gown, claims she was hot.
A Russian nurse has been suspended for turning up on duty in underwear beneath a see-through protective suit, gloves and goggles while working in a COVID-19 ward.
The unidentified staff had complained to her managers at Tula Regional Clinical Hospital that she was “too hot” to wear clothing underneath the head-to-toe vinyl gown, which protected her from contracting COVID-19, local media outlet Tula Pressa newspaper reported.
While there were reportedly “no complaints” from her patients, hospital chiefs punished the nearly nude nurse for “non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing.” The nurse claimed she did not realize that her underwear was showing through the PPE.
However, the regional health ministry confirmed that “a disciplinary sanction was applied to the nurse of the infectious diseases department who violated [uniform] requirements,” the Sun reports. They did not elaborate on what exactly the disciplinary measure would be.
The picture has however gone viral on the internet, with users making hilarious comments on the nurse’s action.
As of Wednesday, there have been approximately 309,000 cases of COVID-19 reported in Russia, and nearly 3,000 deaths.
