It's not even in the same ballpark. One has NOTHING to do with the other. Refusing someone's racist request does not set a precedent for people who have specific issues with the behavior of or treatment by medical professionals.
    Which is fair enough. I just think any non problem request then has to be avoided. I shouldn't be able to request a different gender or because I don't care for their personality (provided that they are giving me accurate and good care).

    You have every right to request it, and they have every right to say no.

    I think they have an OBLIGATION to say no. That's the difference, and that's why I agree that this nurse should sue.

    Once the nurse knows that the patient's parent has a hatred for her, I think it is in the best interest of the patient to have a different nurse unless the nurse was not aware of the request.

    The thing is they didn't just reassign this particular nurse. The reassigned ALL black nurses that would have treated this baby. Some that the father had never even met. It is impossible for him to say he didn't like a nurse he hadn't even met.

    I think it would be fair to tell the nurse, and let her make an informed choice.

    Again, I don't believe that hospitals should be in the business of sidelining capable nurses or Dr's because of this faux "hatred" that you are using as a misnomer for racism. And again, how far should it go? I've seen inner city ER's where almost every nurse or Dr is a person of color. You want the hospital to call in off duty white staff to cater to racists? Its nuts!

    I know I haven't said that. You get what staff is available. Like I said, I can reqest a female nurse but if there are only male nurses available then my request wouldn't be accommodated reasonably.

    No I do not, as I have said, if no accommodation can be made, then the hospital should say no.
