An Indiana University Health nurse was fired from her job after she posted a tweet saying white male babies “should be sacrificed to the wolves.”
The health system issued a statement on Sunday, saying, “A recently hired IU Health employee tied to troubling posts on social media this weekend is no longer an employee of IU Health.”
The statement was linked to a worker at Indiana University Health Taiyesha Baker.

The statement of her dismissal was made one day after the human resources department of the health system started an investigation into the issue.
Though Baker wasn’t named in the Saturday statement, the health system’s spokesperson Jason Fechner, said that Baker was hired by the organization when she shared the tweet.
The tweet was shared on an account titled “Night Nurse.”
Fechner didn’t say where she worked, but the Indiana University Health’s statement indicated that she wasn’t working at Riley Hospital for Children.
“IU Health is aware of several troubling posts on social media which appear to be from a recently hired IU Health employee,” the statement said. “Our HR department continues to investigate the situation and the authenticity of the posts. During the investigation, that employee (who does not work at Riley Hospital for Children) will have no access to patient care.”
Baker’s tweet prompted outrage and fear among the other users.
Night nurse?? Where? The medical society needs to read her racist remarks & ask themselves, ‘is she to be trusted with the medical care of white children?’ https://t.co/uB3iBDnjkl

Night nurse you are a racist. People like you are why we have ongoing hate. You are a shameful bigot. https://t.co/YrLy9QZjCg

What’s scary is that someone like the “night nurse” will be putting in your IV.

Night nurse needs not to be around patients. She is a danger to those that would be white. Plus she is just an idiot

State records show that Baker got her license as a registered nurse on October 30 and said she had worked in pediatrics.
Fechner stated that Baker entered the health care system last month.
“She was still going through orientation and wasn’t caring for patients,” Fechner wrote in an email. “She had no disciplinary issues prior to this matter.”
