Hospital worker accused of online posts trashing Hasidic women 

A Nyack Hospital employee is accused of posting offensive comments about Hasidic women on Facebook.

Deborah Rosario allegedly accused Hasidic women of not working and hiding behind their religion. She also allegedly said that they shop at Lord & Taylor while her tax dollars pay for their children.

Reaction from the Hasidic community was swift, with one community activist meeting Thursday morning with hospital officials.

"The leadership of the hospital told me they have zero tolerance against prejudice.  Workers have a code of conduct and how they cannot express themselves in a disparaging manner,” says Yossi Gestetner, of OJPAC Hudson Valley.

The hospital issued a statement that reads in part, “We are appalled by the Facebook post, which in no way reflects our ideals and care delivered each day."

Nyack Hospital says the incident is under investigation, but declined to release any information about Rosario or the future of her employment.
