I believe you.
I have had to fight for black patients to receive pain medication when they needed it.
Example 1. A guy had an above the knee amputation. He was black. He was restless in bed. I look to give him something for pain and the only thing he has on his mar was Tylenol. WOW!. I went to the intern and said he needs dialudid now. “Intern asked me do you think he’s in pain. I asked him do you think having your leg amputated doesn’t hurt? It’s a major surgery.” He smiled and chuckle and ordered the man pain medicine. He’s leg was cut off about 8 hours ago and nobody seemed to care to ask him if he was hurting prior to my shift. He was restless in bed.
