She has the right to sue them. I just don't see her winning.
Like I said, if "emotional trauma" from having to deal with jackass customers was grounds for a lawsuit, pretty much every business that offered services to the general public could be sued into oblivion.
That's not even remotely an accurate description of what happened but okay.
And how do you make a case that being assigned to other patients is discrimination?
Probably because the hospital management actually said she was being reassigned due to her skin color, but idk I'm just spitballing here.
If they presented her with the OPTION of being reassigned, sure. But in this case she was told "Hey you're black so go take care of someone else's kid." Again, I can't stress enough that she WAS TOLD SHE WAS BEING REASSIGNED SOLEY DUE TO HER ETHNICITY. Whether the patient's husband requested it or not doesn't matter. By cooperating the hospital is just as guilty of discrimination. Any lawyer could tell you that, why do you think the hopstial's lawyer flipped poo when he realized what was going on?
Heck, the hospital can argue that assigning her to this guy's wife would have subjected her to abusive treatment from him. Thus, they can actually say they spared her from emotional trauma.
In the court of public opinion, yes she has a case. In a court of law, it's not enough.
I'll bump this when you're proven completely and utterly wrong.
