My Uncle, who is 55 years old was hired at a local Nursing Home last year. He joined a paid Certified Nursing Assistant training course. Well the facility I guess you could say was 60 percent female and 40 percent male residents. The female residents that still had contol of there mind absolutely refused for him to care for them. The facility administrator told him sorry, you cant work here!! He then pleaded to her, that he really loved this job and if he could stay on and just do vital signs, replace ice pitchers, answer call lights, and wheel patients and feed them, and care for the male patients as needed. The administrator said sorry NO!!! They layed him off right then and there!! The next week I saw an add at the same facility for the position C.N.A., and on the bottom of the page EOE!! Did this facility violate EOE regulations? Can nursing homes really discriminate in this way? or was this an illegal act?
