A disturbingly racist tweet from a nurse at IU Health is being investigated following a social media firestorm. The nurse said in a tweet which has since been deleted, "Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son" and even goes on to say they should be "sacrificed to wolves."

IU Health has announced they are currently investigating the tweets that have been posted by an employee the medical company recently hired. The company says the woman has never worked for Riley Children's Hospital. IU Health assured patients during their investigation the employee accused of making the derogatory and disturbing post will not have access to patient care.
In response to the heinous tweet, IU Health released a statement of their own saying, "IU Health is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee. Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts."
To put concerned patients and families at ease, the company also said, "During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care."
