264. I agree with the court--the health care system would suffer terribly
under the burden of trying to have enough staff of various races to legally accomodate various demands, while remaining fair to the caregivers--and I suspect that someday the gender-preference ruling will fall too, if enough men become caregivers. That said, if I were a supervisor making assignments, I would not assign caregivers of a given race to patients who express hostility to that race, or male caregivers to female patients who have expressed discomfort with male caregivers, unless there were reasons why it had to happen--common sense.
