Well, that didn’t take long.
A woman who got her license as a registered nurse on October 30 of this year lasted less than one month on the job when she found herself unable to control her thumbs and tweeted racist slurs about her patients.
Taiyesha Baker lost her position at Indiana University Health (IUH) – one of the largest hospital systems in the country – after her tweets posted as “Night Nurse” were investigated by the university hospital.
Baker wrote, “white women are raising sons who are rapists, racists and killers” and quickly found herself out of a job.
IUH has issued a statement that Baker is “no longer an employee.”
It took less than a month.
The spokesperson for IUH said, “A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health.”
In addition to labeling her white patients with vile names, Baker continued to disparage them with insults and more namecalling.
“Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves b___,” Baker tweeted.
In previous tweets, Baker said she worked in the pediatrics department of IUH, and the university statement claimed its human resources department had the situation under investigation.
“IUH is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.”
It was unclear whether Baker is still employed at another IUH hospital or has found employment elsewhere, but it is clear her racist comments excluded her from patient contact within a month of receiving her license as a registered nurse.
Maybe she’ll think twice before putting her thumbs on the keyboard again.
Do you think the university health system acted wisely in taking action against a registered nurse who posted racist comments on social media?
