Racial Discrimination - Lawsuit against Hospital Staff Settled

As per reports, a nurse recently filed a lawsuit against the staff of hospital where she was working from 25 years, accusing them of racial discrimination, in January.

Tonya battle, who was serving at the Hurley Medical Center from a long time, alleged that the staff prevented her from taking care of a baby because of her race. She said that while she was working in the Flint hospital's neonatal intensive care unit taking care of an infant, father of the child asked her to speak to supervisor.

The man told her supervisor, pointing to Battle's swastika tattoo, that no African American shall be allowed to care for his baby. Consequently, she was transferred to some other job. The nurse said she was dumbfounded to hear of what happened and was taken aback by the incident.

"This situation in the NICU was triggered by conduct not consistent with Hurley's policies. We regret that our policies were not well understood, causing the perception that Hurley condoned this conduct", said Melany Gavulic, president and chief executive officer at Hurley Medical Center in a short statement at a news conference on February 22.

The nurse was happy that her case would help as a learning tool for those who implemented racial discrimination. The lawsuit has settled as of now.
