An unidentified nurse is suing Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich., over accusations of racism that resulted in her being reassigned to another area because the father of a newborn allegedly did not want his child being cared for by a Black woman, reports WNEM.com.

The nurse, who has been employed by Hurley since 1988, worked in the neonatal intensive care unit of the hospital. The lawsuit contends that the father of a newborn in the unit witnessed the nurse caring for his child. The fuming father immediately demanded to speak with a nursing supervisor.

In no uncertain terms, the father allegedly informed the head nurse that he did not want any Black woman caring for his child. He then reportedly rolled up his sleeve to expose a tattoo, which is alleged to have been a swastika.

According to the attorney for the Black nurse, she was reassigned as a result. The nurse also stumbled upon a note on an assignment clipboard that allegedly stated, “No African-American nurse to take care of baby.” With regards to the nurse’s reaction, “[She] was shocked, offended and in disbelief that she was so egregiously discriminated against based on her race and re-assigned,” state the court documents.

When WNEM.com contacted Hurley regarding the litigation against them by the African-American nurse, the medical facility responded with the following statement: “Hurley Medical Center does not comment on past or current litigation.”
