No Black Nurses Request Draws Lawsuit

Source: ABC News

A Michigan hospital is under fire after a lawsuit claims it fulfilled a father’s request to have no black nurses look after his baby in the neonatal intensive care unit last fall.

A black nurse sued Hurley Medical Center for discrimination and violation of the state civil rights act after the nurse manager reassigned her because of the man’s request for no black nurses, according to the complaint.

The man also pulled up his sleeve to reveal “some type of tattoo which was believed to be a swastika of some kind,” the complaint from nurse Tonya Battle, 49, read. The name of the father who made the request was not included in the court papers.

“Please, No African American Nurses to care for Baby per Dad’s request. Thank you,” read a note that was attached to the baby’s clipboard and obtained by ABC affiliate WJRT in Flint, Mich. This followed a staff meeting and a call to the nurse’s home to inform her of the decision, according to the complaint.

How? The persons identity wasn't made public, and quite honestly if you are stupid enough to request something like this, you deserve to be identified.

I used to work in the music business. There were many times a black singer going on tour would specify using an all black band. Not a problem.
Same thing here.
BTW: You sound like a really fat girl. How big are ya?
Not legal. Show business is a little different than a hospital, but you don't sound bright enough to understand that.

Do we know the whole story on this? Was the baby's life in danger so the staff told the jerk anything to get the child in to treatment?

I did. It only refers to the child being in neonatal ICU. It does not go in to details and does not say whether the child was in imminent danger at the time they agreed to this.

And a black singer requesting an all black band is not racist or prejudicial?

Slewsie, you are in danger of losing your job as the Spell Check Queen again. You don't want that to happen do you. Next time spell college correctly, OK?

But you do read every item of gossip about her, right GURL !!! Even if it is total BS !!

Beyonce and Jay-Z did NOT pay $1.3 million so the Destiny's Child singer could give birth to Blue Ivy in a sealed off private floor ... this according to the hospital.

A rep for Lenox Hill Hospital just released a statement, claiming, "The suggestion that the couple paid $1.3 million to rent an entire maternity floor is simply not true."

The rep adds, "The family is housed in an executive suite at the hospital and is being billed the standard rate for those accommodations."

According to the rep, "The family does have its own security detail on site. However, the hospital has been and continues to be in control of managing all security at the facility. We have made every effort to ensure minimal disruption to other families experiencing the births of their own children over the past three days."



You go GURL, lie some more !!
