A hospital nurse is now a jailed nurse after posting pictures of patients on Facebook

For posting "disturbing" photos of her patients on the social networking site Facebook, a nursing assistant in the United States was jailed for eight days and her license was revoked for two years, the news site Daily Mail UK reported on Thursday.

While working at Regency Pacific Nursing and Rehab Center in Portland, Oregon in the United states, Nai Mai Chao, 26, took graphic pictures of at least two of her patients, one of them dying, the report said.

The photos showed the patients using bed pans, with one of the elderly’s buttocks shown. There are also photos of human feces in the bed pans.

Chao reportedly posted it on her Facebook page, making derogatory comments on the photos.

The Jury court found Chao guilty of invading her patient’s personal privacy and sentenced her to eight days in jail. She was released on March 2 this year.
