The dead patient was black too.
Can she play the race card as well?
Oh, I guess not from the grave she can't.

Ok...we all know IL has a reputation for using a minority as a scapegoat, someone died, and they're sitting arounf playing the blame game with this woman, and yes I'm labeling her as a woman and not black woman, just in general most people who go to school to become nurses, are only looking for stability, and the majority of them distance themselves from having compassion with patients, and there is no one who has the right to point the finger just at this one nurse, because it is the doctor's job to see to it that the patients are being properly taken care of, they put their faith in nurses way too much, because doctors want to get paid to do nothing, while nurses jump through hoops and often times gang up on another nurse to get them fired or sabotage them because they're competitive and don't want to lose their job, being black is only a small portion of being the target for something like this, I've seen a whole lot of mean hateful, neglectful/abusive nurses in all shades. The doctor should be the one held responsible.
