Nurse files racial discrimination lawsuit against Queen's Medical Center

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- A registered nurse has filed a lawsuit against the Queen's Medical Center, alleging racial discrimination and retaliation after she reported that patient safety was being jeopardized.

Ellen Harris said she enjoyed her job as a nurse in Queen's intensive care unit, where she had worked since 2006. Her employee records show that her competency and performance regularly met or exceeded standards.

The lawsuit contends that Queen's has a patient care policy that limits the number of patients assigned to each nurse in the ICU to two patients. In some cases, a patient's condition may require that a nurse take care of just that one patient.
