US settles race complaint against Flint hospital
FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The federal government says it's settled a discrimination complaint against a Flint hospital following accusations that black nurses were barred from treating a white newborn.
The Flint Journal reported Friday the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission will conduct annual training for the management staff of Hurley Medical Center. The EEOC also will work with the hospital on other educational and developmental efforts aimed at Flint-area youth.
Hurley Chief Executive Melany Gavulic says in a statement that she's pleased to work with the commission and receive its resources.
The hospital agreed to play about $200,000 in March to settle a lawsuit filed by three nurses. A lawsuit filed by another nurse is ongoing.
The lawsuits allege hospital management agreed to a man's request that no black nurses care for his newborn.
