There are no "patient's rights" where race is concerned. This hospital is in huge trouble
So is it enough for the hospital to fire all personnel that had any involvement with this situation and then offer the nurse an apology at an open press conference for all to see.
Or on the other hand is the only thing that will make this right is to award the nurse with a large amount of cash?
