Tonya Battle was "shocked, offended and in disbelief" when her supervisors at Hurley Medical Center informed her she couldn't care for a baby in the neonatal ICU because she is African-American. And now she has slapped a racial discrimination lawsuit on the Flint, Mich., hospital after it acquiesced to a father who flashed his swastika tattoo to get across his demand for white-only personnel. A supervisor also posted a "no African-American nurse" note on the baby's chart, an act even the hospital's lawyer advised later was improper, though the order stood. Battle, who has worked at the hospital for 25 years, is seeking unspecified damages. [Source]
