A home-care worker who does not know how to clean, care for and treat her patients has gone viral online.
The video was posted by a user on the subreddit /r/HomeCare on Tuesday.
“What I like about this housekeeper is that she knows how to do it right,” she says in the video, as she takes photos of her housekeeping duties and demonstrates how to get the cleaning job done.
“Her husband doesn’t know how.”
After the video’s introduction, the user explains how she was hired and why she didn’t take the job more seriously.
“My husband was very worried that I was going to get fired and I was hoping he would do something because I have a very good work ethic,” she said.
“But he was worried because I’m very young, and I’m not an experienced housekeeper.”
After reading some of the comments, she says she is not “stuck” and has been doing her job.
“I’ve been doing this job for 10 years, and this is the first time I’ve done it in 10 years,” she added.
“If I wasn’t able to do my job, I would have quit.”
After some criticism, she explains her reasoning for doing it.
“As a woman, I’m just here to make people happy,” she told the users.
“That’s all I do.”
The user responded by sharing a link to the video.
“A woman does not have to be a housekeeping genius,” she wrote.
I can’t help you with your kids.” “
You can’t tell me how to handle my baby.
I can’t help you with your kids.”
The video has now been viewed more than 5,000 times, with users sharing their own tips for housekeeping professionals.
“It’s not really that hard, really,” one user wrote.
But another user commented, “I am not sure how much work a woman needs to do, but that is what the job is.”
The thread has been up for more than 24 hours, with the post gaining more than 1,200 comments.
A spokesperson for the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council said it was “aware of the video”, and had spoken to the user who posted it.
The spokesperson said there were no issues with the video at the council’s centre, and had offered her a “very generous” apology.
It is absolutely essential that every single member of the nursing and Midwives profession be competent in their job,” she read in a statement. “
We would never suggest that anyone should be discouraged from doing their job.
