The activists have gotten a hold of this story that broke about a week ago.  As a result it’s getting some national attention. It does bring up an interesting question.Do you have a right to request who takes care of your family at a hospital?

Hurley Medical Center’s CEO is breaking her silence following a lawsuit filed by a black nurse claiming racial discrimination.

The nurse, who has worked at Hurley nearly 25 years, claims she was re-assigned because she is black.The suit says Hurley honored a father’s request, last October and into November, that no African American nurses care for his newborn baby in the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU.

The lawsuit claims the nurse’s supervisor, the charge nurse, contacted a nurse manager who re-assigned the baby, later met with another supervisor to ok the father’s request and even had a staff meeting to let them know about the decision.

The suit claims there was a note posted on an assignment clipboard before a hospital attorney told the nurse manager they could not continue doing what had been done.Activists with the Michigan Chapter of Al Sharpton’s National Action Network held a news conference at the hospital Tuesday. They are demanding answers and action. More below.
