MANILA, Philippines—A Filipina nurse who was called ‘Satanist’ by newspapers in Switzerland drew flak from netizens after posting her photos with the dead and dying pensioners of a nursing home in Saint Gallen, Switzerland on her Facebook account.
Based from the reports of Huffington Post United Kingdom, the nurse named Blaze Finder, who has a Facebook pseudonym Ghostinthedark Stania Blaze made a poll for her 2,000 Facebook friends, asking if the people she posed with are dead or dying.
Apart from the criticisms from netizens, the 37-year-old nurse also shocked and saddened the Swiss Association of Nurses.
In one of her interviews, she said that she was “harvesting souls.”
A fine of $1,300 and a suspended fine equivalent to 120 days of pay were issued to her by a Swiss court.
Nonchalant on the issue
On her Facebook page, she responded casually to one of the netizens criticizing her action, “I can put anything I want in my Facebook, it’s mine. People who doesn’t want what I post they can juz up and die death is normal and people die all the time.”
Meanwhile, relatives of the pensioners couldn’t help but expressed their objections toward the photos posted on Binder’s Facebook account.
“The images must instantly disappear from the internet,” 66-year-old Ruedi Forrer, the son of one of the pensioners in Binder’s photos, said.
It was also cleared by the Philippine Nurses Association of the United Kingdom that Binder is not a member of their organization, “The Philippine Nurses Association of the United Kingdom (PNA UK), as the official professional organization of Filipino Nurses in the UK, would like to make it clear that based on our official record of members, Blaze Binder is not a nurse member of the association,” said Michael Duque, president of the PNA UK.
Duque also emphasized that its international chapter in Switzerland also showed that Binder is not an active member of PNA there.
“As nurses, our profession dictates that we act in the best interest of the patient at all times being their advocate and protector. It is clear that Binder has not internalized these basic tenets of the profession but has instead philosophically distorted the very foundation to which every nurse has been made to realize when she was given the confidence to look after an elderly patient in a retirement care home in Ebersol, Switzerland,” Duque said in a statement.
As of this writing, Binder’s Facebook account was already inaccessible.
