I have had and seen other patients ask to talk to a nurse who is black, even when they are not the nurse for that patient. I do feel offended because I do my best to take care of everyone to the best of my ability. I also see nurses who are black come in and check on patients that are not theirs, when the patient is black. I guess just to make sure that "the white nurse is actually taking care of them." Racism goes both ways, and I am tired of the double standard.
