Black Nurse Told Not To Touch White Babies Settle Lawsuit
Via NewsOne reports:
Tonya Battle, an African-American nurse at the Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich., settled a lawsuit with the hospital, after administrators allowed a racist to stop her, and other Black nurses, from providing care, according to MyFoxDetroit.
When Battle was working in the center’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit last fall, she says that a father requested that no African Americans care for his baby. Afterward, the man allegedly showed her a swastika tattooed on his arm.
Battle, who is Black, says the patient’s file then had a note that read, “No African American nurse to take care of baby.”
But rather than ignoring his request, the hospital supplanted Battle — and the other African-American nurses — with other nurses.
Battle says she and all the other Black nurses were no longer assigned to the child’s care. Two other nurses who were unable to provide care took legal action as well at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
While the details of Battle’s settlement have not been disclosed, the hospital’s CEO reportedly said that his entire staff of 1,600 employees had undergone diversity training.
If the father didn’t want any African Americans touching his child then he should have his wife/girlfriend/baby mama give birth at home then.
