Indiana University Hospital CEO is under fire for saying black doctor who complained of racist treatment before dying of COVID-19 'intimidated her nursing team'

 A hospital CEO is under fire after accusing a black doctor of 'intiminating' nursing staff two weeks after she died from COVID-19.

Dr. Susan Moore, 52, died on Sunday due to complications from COVID-19 at Indiana University North Hospital. Two weeks earlier, she had posted a viral video where she said she was being denied pain medication by a white physician.

She was first diagnosed with COVID-19 on November 29. Since then, she had been admitted to the Indiana University North Hospital.


While lying in a hospital bed and connected to an oxygen tube, Moore, who was struggling to speak, posted a video on Facebook on December 4 in which she accused the white doctor who was treating her of downplaying her complaints of pain.

Her death raised serious questions about her treatment, and Dennis Murphy, CEO of Indiana University North Hospital, issued a statement defending his staff and promising an investigation.

He also speculated that, as a doctor, she may have 'intimidated' the nurses.

Dr. Susan Moore, 52, died on Sunday due to complications from COVID-19
Her death comes more than two weeks after she posted a viral video on Facebook saying that she was not given adequate medical care while hospitalized at Indiana University North in Carmel, Indiana

Dr. Susan Moore, 52, died on Sunday due to complications from COVID-19. Her death comes more than two weeks after she posted a viral video on Facebook saying that she was not given adequate medical care while hospitalized at Indiana University North in Carmel, Indiana

She was first diagnosed with COVID-19 on November 29. In the Facebook video, Moore said that medical staff at IU North waited hours before giving her desperately needed pain medication

Murphy said he 'saw several human perspectives in the story she told – that of physicians who were trying to manage the care of a complex patient in the midst of a pandemic crisis where the medical evidence on specific treatments continues to be debated in medical journals and in the lay press.' 

He continued: 'And the perspective of a nursing team trying to manage a set of critically ill patients in need of care who may have been intimidated by a knowledgeable patient who was using social media to voice her concerns and critique the care they were delivering. 

'All of these perspectives comprise a complex picture.' 

His comments sparked an immediate backlash.

Erika Nicole Kendall, a personal trainer, took issue with the idea of 'a complex patient'.

'Whenever you need to evade accountability, always start with the most accessible stereotype available,' she said. 

'This statement screams 'she was an Angry Black woman.''

Dr Theresa Chapple, a public health advocate, said she felt 'gaslit' by the hospital's explanation.

Uché Blackstock, an activist for health equity, spoke about the case on MSNBC, to acclaim from social media.

'Tragic story of #DrSusanMoore,' said one woman.

'Everyone I know has a story about begging for pain meds after major surgery while 'other' patients given excess pills.' 

Moore said in the seven-and-a-half-minute video that despite her complaints to medical staff that she was in pain, the doctors wanted to discharge her from the hospital.

She also said in the video that the doctors were dismissive of her complaints that she was experiencing difficulty breathing.


It was only after scans and tests proved her right that the doctors believed her.

A spokesperson for the IU Health system told DailyMail.com: 'IU Health President and CEO Dennis Murphy has published a letter to all who have reached out and shown concern for the care of Dr. Susan Moore.

Moore said she was given inadequate treatment by Dr. Eric Bannec (above)

'Murphy has called for a third-party review with a diverse panel of healthcare and diversity experts to understand both the technical aspects of the care provided and the human elements of the patient experience.

'He says the external review can also illuminate ways the system can live up to its commitment to the equitable treatment of all patients.

'IU Health has a commitment to enhance a culture of inclusion that seeks, welcomes and values all people and will conduct anti-racism, anti-bias civility and respect training for every team member.' 

Murphy said that while he doesn't believe 'that we failed the technical aspects of the delivery of Dr. Moore's care,' he acknowledged that 'we may not have shown the level of compassion and respect we strive for in understanding what matters most to patients.'

In the video, Moore said that she was being given inadequate medical care due to her race.

'This is the second worst day here at IU North,' Moore says in the video from December 4.

'Yesterday, Dr. [Eric] Bannec wanted to send me home.

'At that time I had only received two treatments of the remdesivir. He says: 'Ah, you don't need it. You're not even short of breath'.'

Moore continued: 'I said, 'Yes, I am'.'

'Then he went on to say: 'You don't qualify.'

'I must've because I've gotten two treatments,' Moore said.

'Then, he further stated: 'You should just go home right now. And I don't feel comfortable giving you anymore narcotics.'

'I was in so much pain from my neck,' she said. 'My neck hurt so bad.'

  1. She didn't die of Covid...she died because of her healthcare and lifestyle.
    Allopathy is based on killing the patient with the cure. Always has
    been and will continue because the "results and profits" of culling
    the herd keep them in power and us in poor health.

    Vaccines have always been based on fraudulent science, that was proven
    a long time ago by Edgar Crookshank.

    Everything listed in a vaccine does not belong in the body,
    no matter the amount. Vaccines that cause anything but immunity,
    is poison. Vaccines have never created immunity or eradicated
    any disease. Vaccines create disease and death...especially the latter.
    Would be tough to admit if your practice relied on trust, especially since so many allopathic procedures have horrible track records. Curing the symptom is their directive,
    making a customer for life is their reward.

    Lemmings...line up for the stab.

    Vaccines are a bioweapon and its being used in the current
    communist coup...pretending to be an election, while the media
    drives the getaway car. There needs to be arrests made.

    “Use the courts, use the judges, use the constitution
    of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to
    further our ends. Do not stint in your labor in this direction.
    And when you have succeeded you will discover that you can now
    effect your own legislation at will and you can, by careful organisation,
    by constant campaigns about the terrors of society, by pretence as to
    your effectiveness, make the capitalist himself, by his own appropriation,
    finance a large portion of the quiet Communist conquest of that nation.”
    (Address of Laventria Beria, The Communist Textbook on
    Psychopolitics, page 8).

    Ronald Reagan warned in 1961–”One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It is very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project.” Students of the history of collectivism will also recognize that calls for increasing the power of the state over the individual is always couched in terms of the “public good” and “protecting the public.” That is, it is a “crisis” that demands collectivist solutions and these solutions must be accepted without debate or analysis by critics or more thoughtful and cautionary individuals. The perfect example of this is the debate over vaccine effectiveness and safety."

    Nobody is going to save us, we need to save ourselves,
    and that take something that rarely ever happens...not
    since 1776 has there ever been a time where were separated
    ourselves from the ruling class...and that lasted all the
    way to 1913 with the Federal Reserve Act.

    Let's try it again, this time minus the Central Bank.

  3. So an angry, arrogant, fat bitch talked shit about nothing and the hospital is under fire? From whom? What lunatic would be putting a hospital under fire for treating this arrogant bitch with a modicum of courtesy? She didn't deserve it.
