Forty-nine-year-old Tonya Battle has worked for the same hospital for 25 years. Currently she's a nurse in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). She may have thought she'd seen it all, until one father's request floored her: he asked the hospital to ensure that no African-American nurses cared for his newborn.
A neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse in Oregon who suffered from fibromyalgia was fired after accumulating too many absences, in violation of her employer's limit of five unplanned absences per year. The NICU nurse sued her employer for failing to accommodate her disability as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
