The New York police sergeants union described city health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot as a “b—-” Wednesday in response to revelations that she told an NYPD official she didn’t give “two rats’ a–es” about cops getting safety masks.

“Truth is this b—- has blood on her hands but why should anyone be surprised the NYPD has suffered under DeBlasio since he became Mayor,” the Sergeants Benevolent Association tweeted in response to The Post’s exclusive story revealing Barbot’s decision.

Department of Health spokesman Patrick Gallahue acknowledged that there was a “heated exchange between the two where things were said out of frustration, but no harm was wished on anyone.” Barbot “apologized for her contribution to the exchange,” Gallahue added.

Shortly after the SBA’s tweet, the union’s president, Edward Mullins, sent a statement calling for Barbot’s ouster.
