A registered nurse (RN) with the Sarah Bush Lincoln Hospital in Mattoon, Illinois, was caught on TikTok by the Libs of TikTok claiming that she gives medication based on her patients’ political beliefs and race. The APRN quit soon after the hospital confirmed to Breitbart News that her social media statement was “inconsistent” with its goals and that it was investigating the matter.
A woman identified as Shawna Harris an (APRN) at the Sarah Beth Lincoln Sullivan Clinic tweeted this week, “I prescribe medications… I can also decide not to prescribe them. So if you are a white male who votes Republican, your penis will have to seek God for the ability to rise from now on. Viagra is no longer necessary.”
“This is not the policy of Sarah Bush Lincoln Hospital,” the hospital stated this week. “We provide healthcare to everyone, regardless of their gender, race, sexual orientation, religious beliefs or other factors.”
“This issue is being addressed,” the Sarah Bush Lincoln Twitter account added.
This week, the Sarah Bush Lincoln health center stressed that “the goal of Sarah Bush Lincoln is to provide care for all.” Our medical practices are in line with this and it runs throughout the organization.
“We provide medical treatment to everyone, regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, religion, income, or cultural or personal viewpoints and beliefs,” the clinic said in response. “A recent social media post is at odds with this. We are looking into it. Thank you for your concern.”
Later, in a further statement, Sarah Bush Lincoln revealed that an APRN who made a discriminatory remark on social media over the weekend had resigned.
“I apologize for my social media posts,” the APRN told the hospital, according to a statement. “I allowed my personal views to bleed out. Those hurtful words are not consistent with how I have delivered care to my patients. Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center is an excellent organization, and I apologize for any damage I’ve done to its reputation. I have tendered my resignation, and I’m confident that my clients will be well cared for as a result of it.”
“Our first obligation is to provide high-quality care to all,” said President and CEO Jerry Esker. “We strive to give excellent service to everyone, regardless of their race, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, disability, gender, national origin, income, cultural personal values, beliefs, and preferences.”
