Contents Under Pressure: I lived in a white neighborhood. The first black person I ever met was a black nurse when I was hospitalized at a very young age. I loudly announced, "You're a chocolate nurse!" and she threw her head back and laughed. She laughed harder when I said that must mean I'm vanilla. (I had ice cream on the brain) I have had a special spot in my heart for black nurses ever since. Those ninnies missed out is all I can say.


My little brother at the age of 3 took a baby wipe to a black friend of my Uncle's at a party and tried to "clean" him. He had the most confused look on his face when his skin didn't wipe off.

My Mom was mortified but thank god he found it hilarious.

Elegy: Mrtraveler01: Elegy: I like how you pull an example from the era of segregation to prove that preseny-day Mississippi (and the south in general) is more racist than elsewhere in the US, and somehow deserves special derision and ridicule.

Mississippi is always deserving of derision and ridicule. Regardless of the reasoning.

Dreadful state.

we execute more people than Mississippi...

But we still throw stones at them because they are racist bible-thumping rednecks while we, magically, are not.



Isn't that everywhere in the country? Find some terrible sterotype/truth and it's no longer regional, but because the south has more black people, and had slavery almost 150 years ago, it's obviously more racist.

"Grand-pappy's grand-pappy lived in that era, but was dirt poor, but knew someone that had slaves, and he said 'times were good!' and that's how I'd like to be rememebered, for a person I never met and knew very few stories about, forevermore." - Everyone in Mississippi

cman: MBK: Spad31: O RRY? You're going to have to explain in detail why.

Because the hospital is making health care decisions based on race.  They are telling her, because she is black, she is not qualified to take care of the child.

This

Discrimination laws are quite clear. It is illegal to discriminate solely on the basis of race. When the parents made the request, the hospital should have told the parents to go fark themselves and there was nothing that could be done about it instead of going about breaking the law.

The hospital is in the wrong on this. There is no excuse.


The hospital didn't fire the nurse, it reassigned her. Good luck proving damages. The case isn't about the hospital discriminating, it's about the patient. If your plumbing is leaking, it's perfectly legal to discriminate when hiring a plumber to come fix it.

Coco LaFemme: Racists are everywhere, subby.  You can't just assume the South is the sole proprietor of these very special people.  I grew up in Chicago, and it's one of the most segregated cities I've ever seen.  That said, I think it's high time we started treating racism like the mental illness that it is.  I mean, you're so full of hate for ________, you don't want them coming into contact with your child?  Your brain isn't working correctly.  Something's wrong, and it needs to be fixed.


And let's start by jailing every owner of every Asian restaurant in the country. They're the most blatant discriminators when it comes to hiring.
 
2013-02-16 06:13:58 PM  
Okay, I think the crux of the lawsuit lies on the fact that Douchebag Racist Daddy threatened the nurse [flashing the swastika and "telling her to talk to her manager"] and instead of telling Daddy to "stop mistreating their employees" reassigned her and all the other black nurses from the NICU for a month.

Now THAT's a lawsuit.

Should a restaurant allow sexual harassment of it's employees [comments, pawing, etc] because "that's what the costumer wants"? NOPE, same idea.

4seasons85!: If I was the administrator I would tell the nurse that, yes these people are bigoted a-holes but we can't afford a lawsuit from the couple who would almost certainly sue



So you'll take her suit instead?

Look up discrimination people, because that's the request that was being made (and which was briefly entertained.) This nurse has a case and she will win. The charge nurse should have escalated the complaint/request, rather then kowtow to a racist's desires.

lack of warmth: Actually, this surprised me a bit.  Not that there are racists around, but him even letting his kid be born at Hurley.  We're not talking barely on the edge of Flint, we're talking downtown less than a mile from MLK part of Flint.  This guy is most likely from Burton and so it surprises me he didn't go to Genesis Hospital in Grand Blanc.  Would be the same distance from him, although Hurley does have a better staff for more severe cases.  They don't call it Burtucky for nothin'.


Seriously! If race is such a big issue for him, why would he go to Hurley? I'm betting with a swastika tattoo, this guy doesn't have a job and his girlfriend/wife is on medicaid. Hurley tends to be the default hospital with medicaid.

THE HEALTH OF MY PATIENT will be my first consideration;
I WILL NOT PERMIT considerations of age, disease or disability, creed, ethnic origin, gender, nationality, political affiliation, race, sexual orientation, social standing or any other factor to intervene between my duty and my patient;


Neither the nurse nor the hospital was being in any way negligent in the care of the infant.  The patient's guardian was making poor choices on his behalf.  A nurse may well have the health of his patient uppermost in his mind but if the idiot patient goes out and chugs a liter of Everclear, no considerations of age, diseases, etc. will enter into the fact that the idiot has basically committed suicide.  In this case, the legal guardian of the baby has made those poor choices on his behalf.

Discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, or creed (as the old wording said) is illegal.  The father is employing the hospital to provide care for his child.  If he is going to discriminate, the fault is his, not the hospital's and not the nurse's.

The bold would be the main part I was talking about.  If you give a person an ultimatum, deal with it or leave, especially for an infant that needs to be in an intensive care unit, that is negligent.

Employment was not discriminated, the nurse was not fired.  She was asked to do other tasks at the disretion of her employer to placate an asshole , the purpose of which is to keep a peaceable of an environment as possible. THAT is the purpose of a hospital, NOT be the warground for people's political/racial/sexual issues.

The father is not "employing" the hospital.  They are seeking medical service, there is a huge difference.  A person can "employ" a private doctor, and in which case the situation changes.

The parent didn't make a "poor" choice, he made an "asshole" choice, that was irrelevant as to the welfare of the child.

You could at least attempt to be honest.

Over the last few weeks, there have been SO many gun troll threads on fark, and I've been amazed how SO many single-issue posters continued to flock to those threads, which consistently became the most commented threads of the day.

At some point, it occurred to me that someone must have the theory that those single issue posters, lured back to Fark on a daily basis, sometimes several times a day, would eventually diversify and start to participate in other threads.

If that was, in fact, an intentional strategy, then someone must feel quite vindicated by this thread, as it's quite decorated with posters who have rarely, if ever, bothered to comment in threads outside of gun-related topics.

TLDR: Drew must be thrilled that the gun tards are branching out and joining forces with the Fark Bigot Brigade.

Having worked in healthcare I sympathise with the hospital a bit.  When about 90% of the people you deal with in a day are arseholes, anything easy you can do to lessen the annoyance is a relief.  Why cause all that grief and complaining when a simple staff swap will solve it?

I had 200 other clients to deal with.  You don't want a female case worker?  Fine.  You don't want a foreign case worker?  Fine.  You want a non-white case worker?  Fine.

"Put healing ahead", etc. If the black nurse was qualified, healing would've taken place. Therefore, it isn't a concern. The concern is your ready and eager capitulation to hatred and ignorance by penalizing a good worker.

As they say about Fox News, you might not be racist, but you're #1 with them. The next time some buffoon wants a provider or a business to step on people for being black or female or Jewish, he can rest assured that you have his back.

You're just fabricating an argument here, the argument you want to argue against, and blithely ignoring what I am actually saying.  I believe that's called a straw man.  That you're painting me in a negative light is also an appeal to spite.  Both of which are invalid tactics when it comes to proving a point with logic.

Hospitals accommodate assholes all of the time, of all flavors.  They do it because they take the hypocratic or a similar oath, which dissalows them to interfere or preach to those that are actually in need of healing, to keep their heads out of anything of the sort.  If you'd have read my previous posts honestly and with an iota of intellect you'd understand why.

They are supposed to take a benevolent path in regards to dealing with patients/guardians in all aspects of the patients/guardians lives.

Here's a neat nurses pledge.   International Council of Nurses' Pledge
http://www.snjourney.com/Newsletter/Articles/PinPledge.htm
"In the full knowledge of the task I am undertaking, I promise to take care of the sick with all the skill and understanding I possess, without regard to race, creed, color, politics, or social status, sparing no effort to conserve life, to alleviate suffering, and promote health.

I will respect at all times the dignity and religious beliefs of the patients entrusted in my care, holding in confidence all personal information entrusted to me and refraining from any action which might endanger life or health.

I will endeavor to keep my professional knowledge and skill at the highest level and give loyal support and cooperation to all members of the health team."


Note that second line.
I will respect at all times the dignity and religious beliefs of the patients entrusted in my care, holding in confidence all personal information entrusted to me and refraining from any action which might endanger life or health.

That's why religious people can choose a doctor of the same beliefs, why a female can ask to have only females attend her,  etc.

What's more, is that it is also in the policy of many hospitals, because founders of the hospital recognize the importance of remaining impartial that that which they find distasteful.

That is what the hospitals and staff that deal with the patient sign up for.  If they don't like it, they can find a different job.  The job has that ethical sacrifice inherent in it's very concept.  Letting politics into the arena can quickly lead a corruption of the healing that they are supposed to carry out.  You do whatever you have to to promote the well being and peace of mind of the patient/guardian, to include maintaining a stress free environment to the best of your ability as that promotes healing.

The only actual exceptions are legal requirements, which amounts to reporting crime, and not committing any(Ie not giving unauthorized drugs, etc)

There is a reason for a certain amount of tolerance in that profession, especially when it comes to things that are legally not defined, as anyone with a shred of empathy can understand, that it could be you.

Today you propose it is assholes we should refuse(via ultimatum), what happens when the social trends change?  What if the annoying optimism and extreme naivete had a fall from grace and were held in contempt?  Neither affectation is precisely illegal, correct?  Surely, even today, some doctors would rather not treat such people, just as some would rather not treat prejudiced bigots.  But they do, because it's their job, they signed up for that ethical obligation to set aside their feelings and do as needed to serve the patients needs.

What you're doing here is passing a moral judgement, which is in effect no better than the asshole you have a problem with, the same mental trappings and failures.  Liberals the world over fall into the same traps as the most staunch conservatives, the same logic, a different topic.  It's humorous, yet sad, when you see people carry it out.

If that means one nurse switches places with another, where is the harm in that?

She was not "thrown under the bus", indeed, making her work with and next to racists would be throwing her under the bus.

Now, if you want to debate the points I've presented in a rational matter, please do so.  If you want merely to continue and lie, and defame me, you can do that to, but just so you are aware, I've seen people have posts deleted or actually get banned for such things.  I suggest you tread lightly.

Wouldn't HIPAA bar that information being passed along?... and in a fight between HIPAA and Civil Rights Act of 1964, which side prevails?

/correct hospital response was: take yor crackerass baby somewheres else, then.

There doesn't seem to be any medically relevant information contained in their request - the father didn't say "Keep that black woman away from my baby because she triggers my PTSD."

It's also nothing at all like a religious exclusion, for those of you trying to make that argument.  You can argue that religious excuses in general are phony-baloney, and maybe they are, but they're also protected by law to some degree.  This kind of discrimination is not.

Does there have to be a medically relevant request?  If I don't want a woman providing treatment, I can make that request and it would need to be honored.  I could refuse treatment from a male nurse because of some BS reason like, "males aren't as compassionate or caring" and I bet the man would probably shrug it off, maybe complain for a minute, then move on with his life.

How exactly are race and gender the same thing?

Race as a social construct for organizing people is not a universal. It's historical construct that you see in many societies, but it is not a defining characteristic in many places. I think you could argue that there are socially-based hierarchies in all societies, but not necessarily racial ones.

Spanish speaking Americas: European vs. Indian appearance.
Brazil: "although a large percentage of the population is black or has black ancestry, they represented no more than 8% of the 513 chosen representatives in the last election year."
North America: white vs. everyone else.
Europe: Blacks, (southwest) Asians
Middle east: Arab vs. everyone not Arab.
Asia: "Japanese Only" signs are common on bars.
Africa: Hutu vs. Tutsi, South Africa, slavery in Mauritania and Niger.
Australia: "White Australia Policy"

I think that's about everywhere. I could not find any references to racial strife in Antarctica, but I'm not sure would qualify as "many places" as you asserted.

Wayne 985: Who gives a shiat? The International Council of Nurses is not Hippocrates. It's a voluntary federation of nurses. What is this babble?

Not that you're wrong, but there are some odd exceptions out there.

Given that the black guy has what looks like a yin-yang symbol on his arm, might the swastika on his chest be the Eastern religious variety?

Makes sense to me.  I just thought it was an amusing picture.


Fair enough, it is pretty funny if you don't notice the other tattoo.
