Black Nurse Sues Major Hospital for Honoring a Patient’s Racist Request

 

Written By: Miss D. “Rashai” Jones

Nurse, Teoka Williams, who worked at Beaumont Hospital in Dearborn for 10 years, but was very humiliated, embarrassed, and disappointed after an incident in the hospital accommodated a patient’s request to forbid her from taking care of the patient.

According to the lawsuit, Ms.Williams has finished checking up on the two patients on her assigned room when she overheard one of the patients saying she didn’t want a “black b—-” taking care of her.

In the lawsuit filed last Monday, Ms.Williams claims her federal and state civil rights were violated. Her attorney Julie Gafkay said the lawsuit “is about being denied the opportunity to do your job duties based on your race, and being segregated from your job duties based on your race.” Williams is seeking compensatory and punitive damages. What are your thoughts?
