INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A Black doctor who died battling COVID-19 complained of racist medical care in widely-shared social media posts. It has prompted an Indiana hospital system to promise a “full external review.” According to her Facebook post, Dr. Susan Moore tested positive for COVID-19 in late November and was hospitalized in suburban Indianapolis. The physician said she had to repeatedly ask for medication, scans and routine checks while admitted. She noted a white doctor in particular who seemingly dismissed her pain. She was sent home but was hospitalized again. Her condition deteriorated, and she died Dec. 20.
