Nurse Katherine Lockler posted a video rant on Facebook about how people are handling the flu outbreak.                       Facebook

Lockler's clip has been shared on Facebook more than 94,000 times as of Friday morning.

"I saw a father with a little child creeping on the floor in the emergency room and I moved toward him and I stated, 'Hello father, I don't feel that that is an insightful choice, your kid is being presented to some extremely very bad germs on this emergency room floor, '" Lockler said.

"Some of them are not true emergencies but they're waiting along with the flu right next to them so guess what?"

To close, Lockler said she gets "yelled at and cussed at" a lot because people are upset with how long they have to wait.

A Florida nurse working to combat "a cesspool of funky flu" in the emergency room has gained widespread attention from a viral video on social media urging people to take precautions to avoid influenza. 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.

"Wash your stinkin hands so you don't get all your babies sick", she said in the video.

One of the punishments has a player literally handcuffed to the game board (handcuff included). And if you successfully pull off the cheat without getting caught, you get a reward.

While she did it with a little bit of humor, Lockler said she's happy just to educate others on how easily the flu can spread especially in hospitals.

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

"Here are some thoughts if you don't mind me sharing", she continues.

In the almost seven-minute video, she also discusses easy flu prevention methods. "Because guess what? You just got maybe 15 new vectors, or carriers of the flu, by them all walking in".

"It's killed some people", she said.

"It is a cesspool of flu - a cesspool of funky flu at the ER right now", she said in the video, explaining how - hypothetically - players on a softball team should not come to the hospital to visit a sick or injured teammate. "It's fantastic to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hands and - I watch - no one grabs the hand sanitizer". Don't bring your kid's sports team, don't bring your "healthy children" and definitely don't bring your newborn babies, Lockler said.

TSMC added that meeting the demand for these chips is alone bringing around $350 million to $400 million in its quarterly revenue. The South Korean firm is looking to expand into the cryptocurrency mining area, according to a report from TechCrunch .

"It's fantastic to watch how many people come through the emergency room, sneeze in their hand, and I watch no one grab the hand sanitizer that's only every three feet in the ER", she said. "I wish this could be played on repeat in the waiting room", read one comment on Lockler's page, which was reflective of many. "And if you don't have what I call a true emergency, this would not be a time to come to the emergency room".

"I have a tendency to be mocking in all my talking, yet in the event that it's taken wrong I would apologize to that gathering that misheard my message in view of my tone".

It's been a record-setting flu season in Northwest Florida and no one's too happy about it.

"Please thank an ER nurse - and every nurse and doctor that's taking care of sick people right now", Lockler added.

"It's unbelievable how many people have no Common Sense!" "We're putting ourselves into the thick of some nasty germs to help".
