One Florida nurse is giving people a piece of her mind about this year's flu season in a amusing Facebook video rant that has since gone viral.

The video has gone viral this week, garnering 5.3 million views, 101,000 shares and 25,000 likes on Facebook as of February 2. Lockler encourages people to wash their hands, and not to bring healthy kids to the ER.

"Especially your newborn babies into the emergency room". "And if you don't have what I would call a true emergency, this would not be the time to come to the emergency room".

Many Facebook users have commented on Lockler's video in praise.

The clip has been polarizing, owing to Lockler's sarcastic inflection and animated facial expressions. "I'm gonna teach y'all a magic trick, it's fantastic".

"Some of them are not true emergencies but they are waiting along with the flu right next to them", she said. "It's unbelievable", she says as she raises an elbow up to cover her mouth in a common move recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). She demonstrates the "magic trick" of sneezing or coughing into the crook of an arm to avoid getting germs on your hands.

"I'll change the names to protect the not-so-innocent", Lockler warns in her video, titled "After Work Thoughts", before sharing some flu-related tales.

Lockler goes on to give other tips to people when it comes to visiting the emergency room during the height of flu season.

"It was a plea to protect you and others against this very bad flu", she explained to Inside Edition.

Lockler told the News-Journal that her tone might have been condescending, but she was only trying to send a message. "But guess what? Five flues came in; 15 flues walk out". Tamiflu, she said, won't cure the flu but will limit the time you'll have it.

At the end of her shift, she said there were around 30 patients, when she left, who will most likely wait hours before they are seen.

"It's great. And half of them don't realize they have the flu yet". One local nurse has gotten so frustrated with the way some people have handled the abnormally harsh season that she recorded a video from her auto after a long day of work to vent. She went on to apologize to anyone offended by her tone, but insists that regardless of how she may have come off the message is still "right on the money".

According to the latest estimates by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there have been about 37 pediatric deaths related to the flu so far this season, Dr. Brenda Fitzgerald reported on January 26 to reporters in a flu activity update. "We're putting ourselves in the thick of some nasty germs to help".
