INDIANAPOLIS – Certified nursing assistant Brenda Chaney was on duty in an Indiana nursing home one day when she discovered a patient lying on the floor, unable to stand.

But Chaney couldn't help the woman up. She had to search for a white aide because the woman had left instructions that she did not want any black caregivers. And the nursing home insisted it was legally bound to honor the request.

Yeah, I love how they put Indiana and reverting back to old prejudices in the same general area. Revert means that you would have to return to a prior thought process. Unfortunately, for a large majority----they never left.

You have to admit that this is sad situation for a health worker to experience. That senior citizen at her age will probably die being a racist. SMH!

I hope she stepped over her, got a cup of coffee, then went to find a white person to help.
