The chief district medical officer(CDMO) of Malkangiri in Odisha on Wednesday showcaused some nurses for extreme medical negligence and recording TikTok videos inside the special neonatal care unit (SNCU) of the district headquarter hospital. This has prompted the administration to inquire into the matter.

CDMO Ajit Kumar Mohanty issued the show cause after the TikTok videos of some nurses went viral in the social media. The nurses are seen singing, dancing and frolicking inside the SNCU in the video in their official uniforms.

The nurses were found recording TikTok videos inside Sick and New Born Care Unit (SNCU) of the hospital. The nurses, dressed in their scrubs, are seen dancing to the tunes of songs and lip-syncing to funny dialogues.

The hospital beds and patients were seen in the video. Even a child patient is seen in the video.
TikTok is an iOS and Android media app for creating and sharing short music videos. The SNCU was set up at the hospital for treatment of critically ill newborn children as Malkangiri recorded high
rate of infant mortality.

Additional district medical officer and the hospitals' officer-in-charge Tapan Kumar Dinda said an inquiry is being conducted and the probe report will be submitted for necessary action.

I have initiated a probe into the matter and will submit the report to the CDMO for necessary action, he said. The CDMO has described the incident as "unfortunate." None from the accused nurses were immediately available for comment.
