“It makes news because of the f*gs,” says HCA employee of bias charge

A former employee of Research Medical Center, and a current employee of a Hospital Corporation of America (HCA) subsidiary – HCA is the parent company of Research Medical – says the hospital does not discriminate against “f*gs.”

On a local news channel’s Facebook page, HCA employee Paula Grant was arguing in the comments with people upset over the ongoing controversy regarding, Roger Gorley, a gay man handcuffed and dragged away from his gay spouse’s hospital bedside after the hospital apparently-insufficiently tried to verify that he was responsible for his spouse’s medical decisions.

Here are two screen shots from HCA employee Paula Grant’s comments on Fox4News’ Facebook page today:

HCA-research-medical-center

hca-research-medical-center2

Grant’s Facebook profile, and LinkedIn profile, both back up the claim that she is a current, and past, HCA employee.

A word of advice for HCA: Usually when asserting you don’t discriminate, it’s best to avoid calling your patients “f*gs.”

    those that have the common sense or intellect to realize being gay is genetic and not choice justify their hatred through religion and the bible, admitting they are bigoted is something they are in denial about being the good believers they claim to be.

    Why, yes, they do. It’s in their Christian job description promulgated by their pastors, under the heading “The Christian Duty of Making Disciples,” i.e., proseletysing and recruiting.

    On top of that, according to Mark (14;50-51) and John (ch’s 13-21) Jesus himself had a special companion who was male… in virulently homophobic first century Judaea.

    From the look of that quotation, she is the Ann Coulter of academia. I suppose she’s the one who first thought it would be cool to call gay people “queer”, as in “Queer Theory”.

    That quotation is rubbish. It doesn’t acknowledge sentience.

    like they don’t play their own version of that in decrying any criticism of our current tax code and objections to subsidizing the private sector as “class warfare” and “socialism.” There are SO many verboten topics and points in their worldview. If you can’t take the heat from throwing homophobic invectives out on social media, keep your trap shut. You don’t get to cry about your feelings after trampling over others’.

  • http://www.facebook.com/monoceros.forth Monoceros Forth

    Very true. This false assumption lies behind the right-wing obsession (that’s receded somewhat but I still see it pop up) that “political correctness” is a baleful instrument of liberal oppression. Somehow the idea that calling someone a “fag” results in social disapproval is the worst form of censorship in the world.

    Guy A was being treated for severe depression. Due to the storms in the area his treatment schedule was interrupted and he was regressing. I cannot say for sure but it seems pretty likely that part of his depression was the trouble he was having with his family. So, he comes back from a spa day, as it were, to be ambushed by a brother who hassles him for being gay, as well as several police and EMTs. If he was already delicate that pushes him further. They then forcefully take him to the hospital, against his will, “for his own good” but take him to the wrong place. He probably was not hospital ready either until he was attacked by his brother and the police.

  • Just_AC

    My confusion on this story is that the two guys were getting ready to go on vacation when the one was ambushed and taken to the hospital where he was going in and out of consciousness. What caused this change of physical and mental state? Personally, if I am getting ready to go on vacation, I am not hospital-ready

  • http://www.facebook.com/eve.condon Eve Wartenberg Condon

    The most basic misunderstanding I see is that they think free speech gives them a pass to say absolutely whatever they want without any consequences–it’s even happened on comments on this site, where if someone is challenged on a thread they shriek about how they’re being denied their right to free speech. You have the right to say what you like, but you still need to take responsibility for your words.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=500185311 David Imgrund

    Remember, he was taken in to the hospital against his will. His brother ambushed him (and he already has a precarious mental state anyway) with the cops and and EMTs, and when he reacted strangely they forced him into an ambulance “for his own good”. The daughter-in-law / step daughter repeatedly told them that there was a Power of Attorney and Medical Decisions pact in place and asked for them to wait for the husband. She was ignored. She told him where he receives his primary care. She was ignored. They ended up taking him where he gets electro-shock, not where he gets his primary physical and mental care. They exacerbated the situation and when the husband, the person legally empowered to make these decisions showed up, he was disregarded. The nurse stated quite plainly that she knew who he was and who they both were. That would imply that she was aware of the living wills and Power of Attorney and she disregarded them for her own ends. There will be lawsuits aplenty but most recriminations will be civil, not legal. The nurse will have her union and the hospital has malpractice insurance.

  • The Political Junkie

    Time for another entity that wants the Federal Government to “stay out of its business” to lose their Federal cheddar over this. They’re scrambling like roaches when the light’s turned on.

  • The Political Junkie

    I work in unemployment claims. According to law, if she’s given a justifiable termination, she won’t be collecting jack.

    It will also be a pain for her to explain why there’s a gap in her employment history, when the HR person will do a google search and find her Facebook posts and her tweets.

  • The Political Junkie

    The fact that she uses the slur on Facebook only indicates how she thinks about gay patients who are admitted to Research. She should be suspended without pay for two weeks, because she’s representing the hospital by discussion of the knowledge of this issue she obtained because SHE WORKS THERE.

  • http://www.facebook.com/monoceros.forth Monoceros Forth

    Right-wingers have an odd concept of freedom in general, one that doesn’t have much to do with political freedom. (For instance, summarily declaring a man to be a “terror suspect” and clapping him in jail without trial is OK; imposing minimum gas mileage requirements on cars is tyranny.)

  • http://www.facebook.com/tuibguy Mike Haubrich

    Too late.

  • Houndentenor

    It’s exactly what she meant. For some reason (mostly a failure of our education system) people think that the first amendment grants them the right to say whatever they want (most of the time that’s true) but prohibits anyone from saying anything they don’t like, especially criticism of what they just said. it’s stupid, but it’s a common point of view.

  • HolyMoly

    Funny thing is, according to Matthew & Luke, Jesus healed a Roman centurion’s gay partner without once uttering a word of contempt such as I see from “Christians” today. He didn’t ask for medical power of attorney, wasn’t preachy.

  • Miro

    Except, don’t forget: If they’re doing things like this to anyone in the gay community, they are doing other similar things to ANYONE they perceive to be in a position of powerlessness. (My short hand for this–which I use just for my own inner conversation is: They’re not just doin’ it to him; they’re doin’ it to everyone.) They’ll do whatever they can get away with to keep the most control and make the most profit.

    Indeed. “Praying for” someone, the way these clowns do it, is simply a euphemism for taking an unhealthy interest in what you imagine to be their “sins”, which of course turn out to be merely those aspects of their personality that you happen to dislike. And all the time you’re dwelling on their sinfulness you imagine fondly that you’re fulfilling the highest of spiritual duties. Hallelujah!

  • Dr. Brent Zenobia

    She is greatly mistaken about the “I can say what I want when I’m off-duty” part. If her comments are taken as speaking on behalf of the HCA, then HCA is quite within its legal rights to discipline or fire her for this posting.

  • caphillprof

    Hospitals have become the most institutional of institutions, the most corporate of corporations, of any industry in our society. When a hospital discriminates against lgbt, that discrimination is institutional, it is corporate, it is illegal and the law must intervene. I think the time for mass rallies on the mall in Washington is probably behind us. We need to start having mass rallies in the backwards parts of America. Lee’s Summit would be a good place to start.

  • woodroad34

    This doesn’t happen with just gays. I had a friend who happened to be black that went into a private hospital to have the arches in his feet worked on and it’s an extremely painful operation. The Phillipina nurses in that hospital would consciously knock his bed to make him scream in pain. He had to call in his doctor to scold the hospital and make sure those particular nurses weren’t on his floor in the future. There’s a real fear about going into hospitals and the lack of civility with many “care takers”. You really feel at their mercy and that they’re unhappy being there, themselves.

    I grew up in KCMO and several of my relatives spent time there. If there’s such a thing as a family hospital, RMC was it for us. I wouldn’t describe the experiences as being fond, but it felt safe and friendly and courteous. Of course the issue of visitation rights for gays was never a part of it, but I would say this is part of our current horrible corporate healthcare, now operated without compassion or humanity and with unprofessional, low-skill workers. It makes me sad on one hand, and I’m not happy to see this event unfolding, but I’m guessing it’s a sea-change in visibility for why we need marriage rights nationally. My best wishes for this couple.

    What that indicates to me is the working ‘atmosphere’ in the hospital accommodates bigotry, (wink, wink) why else would an experienced nurse feel she could allow her prejudices to trump hospital rules and law, or cop thugs feel that they could automatically brutalize the partner of a gay patient, or that a cafeteria worker (or two) feel that they could publicly represent the Corp. with anti gay comments, or that a nit wit clerk feel free to call out fags and proudly declare her affiliation to the hospital, and finally, the weigh-in of an old door keeper security guard, who feels certain people should be subjected to violence in a hospital.

    While dear Ms Grant may be well within her “freedom of speech” rights to speak as she choose while away from work, using the name of her employer in her signature and identifying herself as an employer of HCA might well afford them the right to take actions to distance themselves from an employee appearing to be a bigot.

    Good job, Ms. Grant. Happy job hunting in this economy.

  • clarknt67

    I think she means people who tell her she’s a bigoted asshole are “violating” her free speech. It’s the theory that the First Amendment is supposed to protect you from being told you’re an asshole. (It doesn’t.)

  • bbdrvr

    More like she’ll be promoted to social media specialist.

  • Carl Gorney

    I should have added REPUTABLE offers to my statement. The general point stands.

    You want her Ford? But what if it’s a Tempo?

  • Houndentenor

    There’s no free speech issue here. He had a power of attorney. His wishes were known. Federal law allows his partner to be there. This has nothing to do with speech. It has to do with the hospital violating the law and the wishes of a patient.

  • Indigo

    Speaking as a f*g, I want her f*rd!

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    My guess is that she will be applauded when she shows up at work.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    I imagine some of those free speeches call her the ‘C’ word.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    I doubt it, she’s probably already got offers. It’s Kansas.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    Oh for Christ’s sake Flipper, stop being a piss ant.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    Na, she will be uprated to reception.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    Yep, Ms Paula— time for your crucifixion, oh, what’s that? You were just kidding?

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    Imagine that mentality in a hospital. I’ve seen it in abundance and it gets ugly. I was an advocate back in the day.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    Time to pay Paula Grant a little visit with a ‘no like,’

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Nancy-Richardson/1331632839 Nancy Richardson

    I was just imagine Roger and Allen’s attorneys sharpening their knives in preparation of deposing little Paula about the hostile atmosphere towards gays the hospitals she works at, seeing knows all the security guards there and all. She is about to find the internet is forever.

  • cole3244

    by using the term fags that gives me all the info i need to know about who is to blame, that she is a good christian just puts the the icing on the cake and verifies my opinion of religious zealots everywhere.

  • Mister Matt

    She has a point. This article wouldn’t exist if she weren’t being a c*nt.

  • jason

    no, they’re still there, “fags” and all. I just checked.

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Allen was in and out of consciousness, but when he was awake, he did say he wanted Roger to stay.

  • Carl Gorney

    Ms. Grant, congratulations.

    You just blackballed yourself from any further employment opportunities in the medical field.

    Hope THAT was worth it!

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Putting myself in Roger’s shoes, if it was my wife being taken away from me, I would not take it well at all. In fact, I think arrest and sedation would be the least they’d have to do to me.

  • SkippyFlipjack

    Unconscious? I thought the sick guy was saying that he wanted his spouse to stay

  • http://www.facebook.com/vance.downing Vance Downing

    It never ceases to amaze me how people, particularly those with discriminatory views, simply don’t understand that if you post something on the internet, it WILL be found and WILL be seen. Bet she’s going to have a rough day at work on Monday. She doesn’t seem to understand the concept of freedom of speech either – I bet her cries of “free speech” will be moot if her employers punish her for the bad PR.

  • SkippyFlipjack

    “April, I can speak how I want when I’m away from my job.”

    Hahahahahahahahaha.. sounds like someone might learn a hard lesson in the limits of free speech protection… get ready to update this post to be about a “former” employee :)

  • http://AMERICAblog.com/ John Aravosis

    Yeah, that’s the thing. The person who would get most upset in being evicted from the room is likely the spouse. The reaction strikes me as quite normal. Who’s gonna just leave when their spouse is unconscious in the emergency room, especially because another family member was reportedly being a dick to you?

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Well, by fundamentalist Christian standards, I’m sure she’s a very good one. She hates everything she’s supposed to.

  • Freday63

    I was just gonna say…

  • MichaelS

    These posts are great evidence for a lawsuit. I hope Roger is following this thread, this is important evidence, and any day now Fox News may scrub its site and delete the incriminating posts.

  • Guest

    Seems someone clued her in and those Facebook posts appear to have been deleted. Thanks for capturing them, John. Please make sure Roger gets them for his lawsuit.

  • MichaelS

    And Paul Ryan. And Fox News.

  • MichaelS

    She does, check out her Facebook “likes”

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Well, bless her stony little bigoted heart.

    And gee, you’d think a man might be more than a little bit upset when his own husband is forcibly admitted to the hospital for treatment and psychiatric observation against both his and his husband’s expressed wishes, topped off by the husband’s brother — the guy who instigated the entire thing — trying to deny him visitation rights.

  • MichaelS

    Yes, Paula Grant, I totally agree: Good night. Leave your ID at the door. In the future think twice before posting hate speech on social media. And before your next job interviewer asks for your Facebook password, you might want to think about setting up an entirely new account so they can’t your old one. Oh, I forgot — Once it’s out there on the internet, it’s always on the internet…

  • http://www.facebook.com/monoceros.forth Monoceros Forth

    “Remember free speech?” She need not fret herself. She’s probably already getting treated to more free speech she can stomach.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1257928644 Kathy Gustafson

    Remember your job, Paula?

  • http://twitter.com/moxinabox Mandi Soxley

    Speaking to her credibilty, Paula Grant “likes” Todd Akin on Facebook. wow.

  • http://www.chrislrobinson.com Chris L. Robinson

    That sound you hear is local unemployed Charge Entry Specialists polishing up their resumes… Terminated in 5, 4, 3, 2…

  • clarknt67

    And for the record, we don’t hate the k*kes, ch*nks, wetbacks or the coons either.

  • photobearcmh

    Charge Entry Specialist is basically a clerk. She is nobody, just some low level bigot whose IQ doesn’t reach the room temp. However, it could prove in a courtroom that RMC does have an environment of discrimination. Good job Paula. I can’t say what I’m thinking.

  • tomtallis

    I’ll bet she calls herself a good Christian, too.

  • Mike_in_the_Tundra

    Well now, isn’t that special?
