A Florida hospital fired a nurse for posting disturbing images and captions on social media of a newborn baby.

Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami fired Sierra Samuels for mocking a sick child born with a birth defect, WFOR-TV reported.

The child suffered from gastroschisis, where the baby’s intestines are exposed.

Samuels posted two messages about the baby, WFOR-TV reported.

The first said: “My night was going great, then boom!”

The second message read: “Your intestines posed (sic) to be inside not outside baby” and is followed up with “#gastroschisis.”
