38. Patients rights are patient rights. If someone is ignorant enough to prefer
no care over being tended by a black or any other discriminating trait then so be it. He or she then deserves the right to lie on the floor and die. Hats off to Brenda Chaney, if it had been me, I think I would've probably "not noticed" the bigot on the floor needing help and gone about my day leaving her to be "found" by a white employee.

Zero sympathy for someone getting exactly what they requested. And unless Brenda was fired or refused employment because of this old bigot, no sympathy for her either. I truly believe a patient has the right to refuse treatment from whomever and for whatever reason they choose.
