This is what I found on

Russian doctors and a politician have reportedly come to the defense of a nurse who was suspended from her hospital job for wearing just skivvies under her personal protective equipment.

The nurse, identified only as Nadia, 23, was suspended from the Tula Regional Clinical Hospital for “non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing,” the Tula Pressa newspaper had reported.

Nadia claimed to managers that she did not realize that her underwear was showing through the PPE and that she was “too hot” to wear clothing under the head-to-toe vinyl gown.

Dr. Anastasia Vasilyeva, head of the Doctors’ Alliance, said the group would help Nadia fight the punishment.

Vitaly Milonov, a member of the United Russia party, told a Russian newspaper, “No disciplinary methods should be imposed on the [nurse].”

“In no case should the girl be punished, I am sharply against this,” Milonov added.
