Some photos posted to social media from what appears to be a Florida hospital's maternity ward have outraged the internet and landed two employees in hot water.

One of the photos appears to show a hospital employee holding a newborn by the arms as if making it dance, while another shows an employee's hand giving the middle finger at a baby.

A caption on the second photo reads: "How I currently feel about these mini Satans."

According to concerned social media posts by people who claimed to see it firsthand, the first photo was actually a still taken from a video in which the worker makes the baby dance to hip hop music.

Local reports, including First Coast News, are reporting the photos depict a nurse and another worker at Naval Hospital Jacksonville.

The hospital responded to the controversy in a statement released Monday.

"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," the statement read.

The hospital has not named those staff members publicly.

Women identified as the employees in many social media posts about the incident did not immediately respond to messages left by InsideEdition.com.
