74. I think the error occurred by extending gender preferences
to allowing racial preferences.

Some older women prefer female nurses/aides for bathing assistance. It is old fashioned but I think it can be reasonably accommodated in most circumstances.

However extending it to racial preferences is wrong in every way. I find it hard to believe the nursing home didn't realize they were crossing the line. Sometimes it is just easier to shut people up by doing what they ask. They were taking the easy way out. They have been set straight and I hope future nurses will not have to make a choice of following bad policy and their job.
