A Florida nurse went on a blistering post-shift rant about this year's devastating flu season, and she really wants you to wash your "stinking hands."

In a video posted to her Facebook account after a 12-hour shift, Katherine Lockler of Milton, Florida, vented about how people have virtually no clue on how to prevent the flu. Lockler encourages people to wash their hands, and not to bring healthy kids to the ER.   



"Please don't bring your healthy children — especially your newborn babies — into the emergency room," Lockler said in the video. "And if you don't have what I call a true emergency, this would not be a time to come to the emergency room."

You heard the nurse.
