Two Naval nurses have been removed from duty after images of them messing around with newborn babies emerged online.

Images originally uploaded to Snapchat but later shared on Facebook by concerned recipients shows one of the women flipping off a baby with the caption ‘How I currently feel about these mini Satans.’

A second photo shows another nurse holding a baby by the arms, with those who shared it saying it came from a video where she makes the girl ‘dance’ to rap music.

Two nurses have been removed from duty at Naval Hospital Jacksonville, in Florida, after uploading images of themselves messing around with newborns to Snapchat. This image was purportedly taken from a video that shows the nurse making the baby 'dance' to rap music

The pictures were shared hundreds of thousands of times after being posted online, and were quickly brought to the attention of hospital authorities.

A statement from the hospital’s commanding officer was uploaded to Facebook on Monday night.

It says: ‘We are aware of a video / photo posted online. It’s outrageous, unacceptable, incredibly unprofessional, and cannot be tolerated.

‘We have identified the staff members involved. They have been removed from patient care and they will be handled by the legal system and military justice.

The images were taken from Snapchat and posted to Facebook by concerned recipients. They quickly went viral, leading the hospital to remove the workers and launch and investigation

‘We’re in the process of notifying the patient’s parents.’

The images caused an outpouring of rage on social media, with the nurses branded ‘cruel’ and ‘disgusting’.

Jane Agerton, who identified herself as a nurse from Tennessee, wrote: ‘They need to have their nursing license revoked. I am totally disgusted. How juvenile. Grow up.’

Joy Allen added: ‘As a former Navy daughter, Navy wife and mother of a child born at NAS JAX I am sicken by this behavior.

‘I am sure that if I caught someone doing that to my child…your a** would have been grass under the lawn mower. Shame!’

    This news got me really upset this afternoon , how on earth can a female nurse treat a newborn like that. Where are their motherly instincts? Are they that cold? Smh. What boils my blood is how she called that innocent angel a “mini satan”. May God have mercy on them

    As A Mother This Should Be The Absolute LEAST Of Someone’s Worries Being As Those Nurses Took That Career And Chose That Path Themselves . NO MOTHER Just Giving Birth Should Have To Worry About Their Newborn While In The Hands Of Nurses Who Should Take Their Job With The Upmost Seriousness Dealing With Another Person’s Child(ren) So Im Glad They Got Fired Because That Is Not Only Unprofessional But Also VERY Disrespectful To Not Only Baby But Mom And Dad As Well .

    For me to just had a baby 5 days ago & to know my baby was in the nursery with nurses make me very furious. To even have the thought of this being done to my baby I would literally flip. They should lose their jobs and any future jobs in this field.

    This is definitely heartbreaking, and absolutely a disgrace. No mother by any means should have to go through not being able to trust the naval nurse with your new born.. it saddens me for the mother and as mother the cruel, evil, and outright low down people are …
