A Michigan nurse is suing the hospital she works at for racial discrimination after it allegedly complied with the request of a patient who said she didn’t want to be looked after by an African-American woman and used an expletive to describe her.

Teoka Williams was working a shift at Beaumont Health in Dearborn on Oct. 2 last year when she was assigned to two patients, one of whom said in Williams’ earshot that she did not want a “black b–ch” taking care of her, Williams said in the complaint filed in federal court in Michigan.

The article goes on to state the following:

When Williams, who is black, reported the incident to a supervisor, expecting her to reject the patient’s request, the supervisor instead forbade Williams from going into the room again and replaced her with a white nurse, according to the complaint.

“While we cannot comment on the specifics of this case because it is pending litigation, we can say that Beaumont’s highest priority is providing a safe environment that is free from discrimination for both our patients and staff, and delivering care with compassion, dignity and respect,” Beaumont Health said in a statement.
