The Cleveland Clinic announced on Monday that it fired a medical resident for posting antisemitic comments online, such as threatening to give Jewish people the wrong medication.

“This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic,” the organization said in a statement. “In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion, and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system.”
