Inspiring Story of the "RN on Wheels" Latisha Anderson

April 07, 2015, Kitchener, Ontario

Posted by: Robert Deutschmann, Personal Injury Lawyer

Latisha Anderson became paraplegic at 16 when a stray bullet struck her in the neck. The injury left her in a wheel chair. She has struggled since then to overcome the doubts and prejudice that others have thrown at her.

She graduated from nursing school and got her graduate degree as well. She’s worked in senior’s centres, veteran’s hospitals and now is working at a prison in North Carolina. At her latest job they hired her without meeting her in person to work in the prison psychiatric unit. Upon her arrival on the first day of work they sent her home. After complaints to the government and negotiation with the prison they agreed to take her on. She manages all her nursing from her ultra-light wheelchair and thrives in her career.

According to Latisha, what she needs is a Fair chance, not help.
