Donna Lorraine Bridger, 68, was served with a summons to appear in court on May 3, to face charges over the incident that was filmed at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center on April 14.
In the video, uploaded to YouTube by Isaiah Baskins — and viewed over 500,000 times — Bridger is seen on a telephone demanding someone come and “get these people out of here.”
After Baskins confronts Bridger, asking her “Lady, what is wrong with you,” the woman loses complete control, grabbing at his cellphone while kicking him and screaming “get out.”
According to Baskins, the hospital volunteer used a racial slur on him before he began recording, and in the video he can be heard prompting her to repeat it for his cell phone camera.
Baskins can later be seen talking with hospital security ,describing the encounter while stating that he didn’t defend himself from the physical assault saying, “I’m not gonna put my hands on that lady.”
He can then be heard directing the hospital guard to a witness who was in the room at the time of the altercation and was also booted out.
Following the incident, the hospital apologized and said that Bridger would not longer be allowed to serve as a volunteer.

5.0 earthquake strikes Ridgecrest, California — two months after 7.1
Two months after the 7.1 earthquakes that hit outside of Los Angeles, another more modest quake was detected, ABC-7 reported.
While the location of the quake was about 20 miles north of Ridgecrest, California, at the Naval Air Warfare Center China Lake. People as far away as Clark County, Nevada also felt the rumble Thursday afternoon.
It left several people asking if it was considered a foreshock or a really late aftershock from two months ago.
92% of HPV-caused cancers could be prevented by vaccine: health authority
An estimated 92% of cancers caused by HPV could be prevented through vaccination, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said Thursday, adding that boosting immunization coverage was a key priority.
Human papillomavirus was responsible for an estimated yearly average of 34,800 cancer cases between 2012 and 2016, according to a new study published by the CDC, meaning that more than 32,100 cases could have been avoided annually.
The virus can lead to cancers in both men and women, including cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynx (the back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils).
New poll shows Republicans may get wiped out — in Mitch McConnell’s home state of Kentucky
This year, Republicans may be heading for a rough election in an unlikely state: Kentucky.
New internal Democratic polls reveal that the GOP is struggling in three critical Kentucky races taking place in November. In the gubernatorial race, incumbent GOP Gov. Matt Bevin is trailing Democratic Attorney General Steve Beshear 48 to 39.
Further down the ballot, the GOP is also vulnerable. In the attorney general race to replace Beshear, former Democratic state House Speaker Greg Stumbo is ahead 46 to 39 against Republican Daniel Cameron, the former legal counsel to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. And in the secretary of state race, where incumbent Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes is retiring, Democratic former Second Lady of Kentucky and Miss America 2000 pageant winner Heather French Henry leads GOP former Justice Department lawyer Michael Adams 52 to 37.
