Definitely a sticky situation. Glad it wasn't me who had to figure out what to do.
It's not a sticky situation at all if you know anything about employment law.

It's not refusal of service to say we cannot legally comply with your request. Race is not protected under BFOQ, and customer satisfaction is not a legitimate (read: legally protected) reason to comply with this request.

There are no "patient's rights" where race is concerned. This hospital is in huge trouble.
