The head of a Michigan hospital denied allegations made in a lawsuit that hospital officials relented to a father's request that African-American nurses not tend to his baby. When the father showed a nursing supervisor his swastika tattoo, it "created anger and outrage in our staff," said Melany Gavulic, president and CEO of Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Mich., in a written statement. "This resulted in concern by supervisors for the safety of the staff. The father was informed that his request could not be granted," the statement said.
