Attorney General Eric Schneiderman’s office has settled a discrimination investigation against the Betsy Ross Nursing Home in Rome.

The investigation was into complaints that the nursing home allegedly accommodated the racially discriminatory preferences of a patient that did not want to be cared for by African-American nurses.

The nursing home responded by reassigning all African-American nurses to another unit, barring African-American employees from working in the unit and posting an order that read “No Colored Nurses” in the unit.

As a result of the settlement, Betsy Ross Nursing home will hire a third party diversity consultant, post public notices regarding the nursing home’s commitment to nondiscrimination, develop new protocols for filing complaints concerning discrimination and provide reports to the Attorney General’s office for three years.
