Settlement reached in 'No Colored Nurses' case

 

New York's State Attorney General's Office on Tuesday announced a settlement with Betsy Ross Nursing Home in Rome following an investigation into racist practices at the facility. In a news release, State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said that the home accomodated the racially discriminatory preferences of a patient who did not want to be seen or treated by black nurses by reassigning the nurses to another unit of the facility, barring black employees from working in the unit and posting an order that read, "No Colored Nurses" in the unit.
