African American Nurse Suing Michigan Hospital For Racist Note


A nurse is suing Hurley Medical Center over allegations of discrimination.

A lawsuit filed against Hurley claims she found a note in a patient’s file stating, “No African American nurse to take care of baby.”

According to court documents, the nurse was caring for a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit when the baby’s father asked to speak with a supervisor. The lawsuit states he told the nurse in charge that he didn’t want any African Americans taking care of his baby, then he pulled up a sleeve showing a tattoo believed to be a Swastika.

The lawsuit states the baby was re-assigned to another nurse.

Court documents read “[She] was shocked, offended and in disbelief that she was so egregiously discriminated against based on her race and re-assigned.”

An attorney for the nurse said when the nurse returned to work the next day she found the note posted on the assignment clipboard.

The nurse has worked at the hospital since 1988.

White folks, make up your mind! First we were “the help” and took care of all their kids, now a$$holes like this guy that don’t want “dirty black fingers” keeping his possibly sick child alive.
