The former Apprentice star, 35, branded those planning to strike as ‘cruel’ and said staff should never have entered the profession if they were concerned about salaries.
Speaking on her LuAnna podcast to co-host Anna Williamson, Luisa said: ‘When you’re in this industry it’s completely irresponsible to strike and put people’s lives at risk. Sorry, it’s unacceptable.
‘You have a child that’s waiting for a transplant and that kid doesn’t get that heart because of some f****** jumped-up t****.
‘Every profession has a pay, an account, a teacher… So don’t go into it then.’
She continued: ‘Don’t go into it willing to go on that pay and then go ‘actually, I don’t want to do it anymore because of the pay’.
‘If you’re not happy with the pay that job offers, do a different f****** job from the offset.’
Ulrika reacting to Zissman’s words, said Luisa’s comments were ‘heartless’ as she praised nurses for the work they do, writing in her column for The Sun
She wrote: ‘Zissman’s comments about nurses are not only extraordinarily heartless but show an ignorance beyond reproach.
‘Sometimes you have to wonder if some people aren’t entirely bereft of intelligence and empathy.’
Ulrika said being a nurse required ‘dedication’ and no one who chooses it as a career is doing so for the money.
While she doesn’t like the planned strike, Ulrika said she likes even less that ‘accountants at the top’ have six-figure salaries while those at the bottom ‘have their backs up against the wall’.
Ulrika added: ‘She won’t care what I or anyone else thinks about her comments — which is why, thank the Lord, there will never be a Nurse Zissman.’
Ulrika wrote after Luisa blasted NHS workers who are planning to strike over pay, branding them ‘irresponsible’, ‘cruel’ and ‘jumped up t****’.
Ministers are planning to draft in up to 600 members of the Armed Forces to deal with the raft of pre-Christmas strikes planned by trade unions.
More than 200,000 nurses, ambulance workers and hospital staff could walk-out at the same time after voting to strike in a row over pay and conditions.
Senior insiders warned last week that fears the NHS will suffer its worst ever winter are ‘fast becoming reality’.
