Second nurse files race discrimination lawsuit against Hurley

Posted: Updated:
FLINT (WJRT) -

(02/21/13) - Lawsuits are mounting for a Mid-Michigan hospital under fire for allegedly honoring a father's request that no black nurses care for his baby.

A second race discrimination lawsuit was filed late Thursday afternoon by a second black nurse working at Hurley Medical Center's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or NICU.

The allegations are the same in both lawsuits.

The new lawsuit names one additional nurse along with the same nurse manager cited in the first lawsuit we told you about in an ABC12 investigation last week. 

See that story HERE.

The second nurse sued, in this second lawsuit only, is alleged to have written a note posted on an assignment clipboard that read, "Please, No African American Nurses to care for (redacted) Baby per Dad's request."

Hurley's CEO Melany Gavulic said Tuesday the father's request, last fall, was never honored and all nurses were available to care for the baby.

The first lawsuit has been removed to Federal Court, according to the new lawsuit filed in Genesee County Circuit Court Thursday.

Activists with Al's Sharpton's National Action Network say they will return to Flint Monday to demonstrate outside Hurley Medical Center.
