    A nurse in Indiana is out of a job after suggesting on Twitter that the sons of white women “be sacrificed to the wolves,” hospital officials said.

    Indiana University Health confirmed in a statement on Sunday that a recently hired employee “tied to troubling posts on social media” over the weekend was no longer employed by the health care system, the Indianapolis Star reported.

    The offending tweet, which was posted from an account named Night Nurse, had been linked to an employee named Taiyesha Baker, according to the newspaper.

    “Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son,” the since-deleted post read. “Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves B-tch.”

    Baker was not officially identified, but a spokesman for IU Health confirmed on Saturday that Baker worked for the health care system when the tweet was posted.

    “IU Health is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee,” IU Health spokesman Jason Fechner told the newspaper. “Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work for Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.”

    Fechner declined to indicate if Baker was fired or resigned during the investigation into the posts, citing company policy.

    Baker, according to state records, was licensed as a registered nurse on Oct. 30 and claimed to have worked in pediatrics, according to deleted social media posts cited by WXIN. But Fechner told The Post early Monday that she joined the health care system less than a month ago.

    “She was still going through orientation and wasn’t caring for patients,” Fechner told The Post in an email. “She had no disciplinary issues prior to this matter.”

    Baker’s account — @tai_fieri — was deleted and has apparently been recreated by a new user who posted a series of tweets on Saturday, including a likeness of Pepe the Frog as President Donald Trump.
