Report: NC hospital apologizes for volunteer’s outburst caught on video

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina hospital has apologized after a volunteer was captured on video screaming at a visitor and his family and telling them to leave. The man says on the video that the woman also used a racial slur.

UPDATE: Charge dropped against NC hospital volunteer accused in racist tirade posted on YouTube

The Winston-Salem Journal reports the nearly seven-minute video was posted to YouTube by Isaiah Baskins. A telephone number for Baskins couldn’t be found Friday and the newspaper said it was unable to reach him for comment.

CAUTION: This video contains strong language some may find offensive

The newspaper reports that Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center issued its apology in the comment section under the video.

The volunteer is shown screaming to someone on a telephone to “get these people out of here.” She also is seen shouting at Baskins, “Get out! Get out!”

The woman who had been a volunteer at the hospital is no longer a volunteer, the hospital said.
