The internet has all kinds of people, uploading all kinds of content. Some show us their funny side to keep us entertained, while others showcase their creativity. But it’s all fun and games until someone’s humour mocks others. This nurse was accused of mocking the patient’s trauma with her satirical video and ended up being schooled by people.
A user named Danyelle Rose uploaded a controversial TikTok video on Twitter. In the video, she is seen dressed as a patient in a hospital gown and simultaneously, as a nurse. The gowned Rose, depicting the patient, tries to gasp for breath. In the next shot, dressed as a nurse, she is seen shaking-a-leg to the sounds of the patient while she continues to pretend to be struggling with her breathing. The video is also shot in a hospital-like setup. She captioned the video, “We know when y’all are faking.” Sources revealed that Rose is a health care provider in real life.

In no time, the video went viral but for all the wrong reasons. People were appalled by her video and accused her of mocking the sufferings of a patient.
Hey, Danyelle Suzanne Solie at The Farley Center in Norfolk, VA – I’ve read your “intentions” & bs. You do not have an MD in psychiatry & have no right 2 determine if any patient is faking pain or symptoms. Just do ur damn job before you hurt someone! #PatientsAreNotFaking

A lot of y’all “nurses” should’ve picked a different career…

Are you serious? You think this is funny? Study after study showing medical personnel discounting the pain of people of color because of they believe these patients are trying to score opioids, but let’s make light of that.

Retire. I'm not being mean, I mean it, sincerely. I was a nurse and the years of dealing with it have obviously gotten to you, and made you jaded, and unable to empathize. I know nurses take a lot of abuse from patients and see horrific things, but there's no excuse for this.

#PatientsAreNotFaking It's sad that your ego is so fragile you can't just admit that this went too far. But I guess it is asking too much because you didn't even care in the first place.

It's incredible to me when people, especially those working in human services, advertise what jerks they are.
Yes, drug seeking happens, but taking joy in other people's maladies is pathological. You need help. Very sad for your patients.

Just wait until one of your patients die because you thought they were faking and they find this video you posted pic.twitter.com/iscENGbxIQ

Some also shared their ordeal of how they were brushed off by medical professionals thinking their problems weren’t ‘that serious’.
I had several white doctors/nurses think I was faking some serious mofo pain, because they assumed I wanted drugs. Turns out I had an ovarian cyst burst. Not a giant emergency, but easily pain worse than childbirth (I have three kids).
So no, ya can’t!

This happened to me on Monday. I had to demand one after the nurse kept yelling “idk what you want me to do for you, not being able to move due to pain is NORMAL!” Then they wanted to treat me like a human after they found multiple cysts.

I swear this was my labor and delivery nurse at @OUMedicine Children's hospital when I told her I felt like I needed to push and she said I was "overexaggerating" and 3 min later I had my baby NATURALLY without an epidural like I requested because she felt as if I was "FAKING" pic.twitter.com/jjVQ1IuIRg

This is almost as funny as the time I got in that car wreck and was having such bad abdominal pain that I vomited all the way to the hospital and then the nurse ignored me and my pleas for water until I passed out from dehydration in a puddle of my own puke lmao

Yeah great I had shortness of breath, heart palpitations, fainted multiple times, and had a seizure in the ER waiting bc the nurses thought I was faking and on something but LOL you’re so funny and relatable 🤪

Shoutout to the oncologist that ignored my moms complaints and didn’t look at her MRI ! She was on chemo an extra 2 months than needed and now she’s dead.

Some people also thought otherwise.
I didn't know this needed to be explained.
It's a joke. I highly doubt she would ever do this to an actual patient.
When you're in the medical field there's the things you think and the things you actually do.
Two very different things.

All yall mad at this video should really be mad at the fakers and drug abusers, they waste the time and energy of the healthcare staff when they could be helping actual sick ppl.
Fact of the matter is #patientsarenotfaking; but some are, and it’s incredibly frustrating for all.

many comments below are completely UN intelligent. your vid is not a summary of how you treat people. if they reacted to all jokes this way every joke would have as many emotionally unwel commenters as your tweet. they're taking their trauma out on unrelated circumstances/people.

Some people also thought that the video that was intended as a joke and merely for entertainment was trolled out of context. What are your opinions on the video? Tell us.
