This story has been updated to correct the job of the Salem Health employee.

An employee at Salem Health is under investigation after posting a video on social media mocking a patient’s suffering.

In the video, uploaded Monday morning to Twitter, the employee makes faces as a patient is heard groaning in apparent pain in the background. The caption read, “When a patient has poor coping skills.”

The original video posted to the employee’s Twitter account was removed and the page has been deleted. However, a TikTok user used the original video and showed screenshots of them messaging Salem Health on social media asking for the hospital to act.

The TikTok video posted Monday has 3.5 million views and nearly 7,000 comments.

One comment read: “People like this are the reason why so many of us are afraid of going to the hospital! I hope she gets what she deserves.”
