Racism is something that will always exist. People that are hospitalized should not be forced to allow someone they have ill feelings toward, to handle them, or their children, in such a personal way, bathing, dressing etc...
As long as people are not doing things to harm someone, person, or property... live and let live.
The hospital has to respect the rights of the patient, or, move them to another hospital.
