Parents or coaches who bring their healthy kids to the ER when they really don't belong there.
This year's flu season is a particularly bad one, and perhaps you are dismayed to hear that some people have gotten the flu vaccine and still came down with the flu.
And you want to know why? Oh, how she'll tell you.
Lockler's seven-minute video received mostly positive responses in the comments.
"If a team member of a softball team is sick or injured, you do not bring the entire softball team in to check on them because guess what?" Which I watched them all walk in last night, see their friend, and not touch the hand sanitizer. "There is a cesspool of funky flu at the E.R. right now", Lockler said. "Please don't bring your team in". "My hands didn't because it's unbelievable to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hand and I watch".
Lockler spoke to WKRG News 5 Thursday almost a week after she made the post. But now the video has spread, like the flu, across the country with over 5 million views and counting. In it, she says the flu is spreading like "wildfire", and offers suggestions for staying healthy. We are prepared for these numbers to continue rising as we have only hit the middle of flu season, said a spokesperson for the hospital. Drink plenty of fluids like Gatorade, water or Powerade to stay hydrated. "Wash your stinking hands so you don't get all your babies sick". "Some (are) walking in with the flu and so guess what?" She pops her eyes for emphasis, and gives some grand gestures. "It's incredible to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hands and - I watch - no one grabs the hand sanitizer".
While pretending to sneeze, Lockler showed how she sneezes into the crook of her arm, covering both her nose and mouth at the same time, she noted.

"We aren't out of the woods yet, but there are steps everyone can take to fight the flu", Shuchat said.
Carelessness seemed to be her pet peeve when it came to the flu.
"There is a cesspool of funky flu at the E.R. right now", she says, excoriating people to not come to the emergency room if they don't need to, especially to visit others.
Katherine Lockler has worked as a nurse for 10 years.
"I believe there's a smidgen of mockery in my voice in light of the fact that the guidelines were given such a large number of times and they were not gotten well", Lockler said. "I tend to be sarcastic in all my speaking, but if it's taken wrong I would definitely apologize to that group that misheard my message because of my tone". It may not have been her intention, but she is thrilled that her important message is getting out.
