A hospital in South Korea is being investigated after female nurses were allegedly forced to perform a ‘sexy dance’ in front of management at a company event.
The Korea Times reported on Monday that the Korean Nurses Association have called for an investigation at Hallym University’s Sacred Heart Hospital in Chuncheon.
In a statement by the nurses association, they said:
‘This is a grave challenge to the vocation and self-esteem of nurses. ‘There are numerous nurses who endure an intense workload, low paycheck and frequent overtime with their sense of duty and vocation.’
‘Considering this, the scandal was defamatory and offensive to these nurses.’
An outrage began after a nurse posted a complaint and a video of the sexy dance on social media. It appears to show nurses in short pants and tight tube tops performing a sexually suggestive dance at an annual sports event in October.
‘We were forced to dance in front of high-ranking officials of the firm, who sat side-by-side at a long table,’ the nurse posted on social media.
The Ministry of Employment and Labor will also be carrying out an investigation at the hospital.
‘If we find legal problems, we will summon the hospital officials responsible,’ the ministry said.
