Kaiser Hospital Riverside in Southern California is investigating what appears to be a racist display directed at several African-American employees who work in the hospitals IT Department.
The staffers said they work in an area that is restricted to employees only, so when Xavier Fields arrived for work, he was shocked to find a doll with a racial slur across its chest hanging from a post near his work station.
This story originally appeared on NBCLosAngeles.com .
"Its somebody who works within. Its a locked area. You dont go back there," Fields said.
The doll had its face painted black and was dangling from a rope around its neck.
"Youre not sure what to think. I got a supervisor and I let them know whats going on," said colleague Tyree Hale.
The employees said they did not see signs that their complaint launched an immediate investigation.
