    Do Black Nurses Have a Different Experience?

    Huh, are you talking about yourself or someone else. You are giving two different accounts. Is your first part about being in Europe, or are recounting incidents from outside of Europe? Umm, I would call that confirmation bias. Racism is a problem everywhere not just by certain people and in certain places.

    Infected staff

    Yep extended leave benefit. I think at my job, if you leave they have to pay you the unused PTO. They don't have to pay the unused ELB.

    Do Black Nurses Have a Different Experience?

    That could be because. it is sometimes the CNA who the patients sees and encounters most often. Sometimes the patient only sees the RN when meds have to administered. So don't be surprised if the patient has no confidence with the nurse. Sure RNs are busy, but from the patient perspective, that is irrelevant. Think about it, that was not an issue on the ICU floors or IMC where there is no CNA.

    Do Black Nurses Have a Different Experience?

    I've witnessed it and seen it. It is not just against black healthcare workers. Where I live there are a lot of Filipino nurses and they sometimes get the "let me talk to someone who knows how to speak English" even though they have an American accent. Typically it is the darker/older Filipino in my opinion who get that. I was told by a patient to "get my monkey _ _ _ " out of his room because he wanted me take his BP while his arm was raised over his head. That patient was black, by the way. Out right blunt racism is dying, but I do believe that hidden racism is out more.

    Smartlink has no available tutors. No harm in giving it a go here.
  7. This if for Finite Math Prerequisite for General Biology. Before anyone speculates, once you get a question wrong a new problem is generated, so NO YOU ARE NOT ANSWERING ANY CURRENT PROBLEM!! Thanks for any help!
  8. Has their compassion completely left them or are they more selective with it? What did it take for you to go from the fresh new nurse to the take no BS nurse?

    Could the police learn something from nurses?

    Not a habit. Do you believe the police is in the habit of killing and falsifying records? I'm just saying that there are bad nurses who do harm patients and do falsify records. Like with the police, it is the few bad ones that make the rest look bad. I don't believe that bad things happens in a bubble, there is typically one other person who knows, allows, or let someone get away with things.

    Kill no. Injure, yes. Some nurses got fired cause they restrained someone with the hands above their head. I'm not sure if another nurse saw it and reported it. Or Mgt happen to see it. As for falsifying records, I doubt that has never happened in nursing.

    There are unit and shift cliques. Some can be very tight

    What are your views on switching days with people?

    Do people still dare to ask you or do they not even bother?

    I have coworkers who will voluntarily pick up extra shifts, but when it came close they decided they didn't really want to work them and asked people to switch with them.

    Once some guy was swinging the pole from a mop head around (they were waxing the floor). The situation was resolved, and believe he was placed weeks later.

    Whenever we have to deal with a patient who has an outburst, I always think to myself "thank God this person is not doing this in public".
  16. On how to safely deal with a violent or even non violent person. Of course I do realize that in public there are weapons involved, however I do believe that they can learn something from nurses. Not to mention that nurses have to deal with potential weapons too.
