    RACISM IN NURSING

    I don't believe that a person that will sink this low deserves to be around patients. If she will do this to another healthcare worker, what are the limits to what she'll due to a helpless patient?

    RACISM IN NURSING

    I am making it my mission to ensure that she is fired and is reported to the Board of Nursing. We're also talking to the board about revocation of licensure.

    How can I make an impact in healthcare?

    Yes. He needs to know how to get this issue resolved and how high to to take it. I say revoke the license of the CNA. This is something that a healthcare worker should not do... as a HCP, this behavior is not acceptable.

    How can I make an impact in healthcare?

    RACISM. I hope that this is the correct place for this post, but I am in need of help. My brother ( black male working in a town which is 96% white, 3.8% other) who is also a nurse is currently working in the Dakotas and has been there for over a year and loves it there. He confided in me today that two of the CNA workers who work for him spit into his bottle of water when he was away from his desk. He stated that he was "wondering why they were laughing so profusely when he started to drink his water after assisting a patient on his floor". The sad thing is that the two other CNA workers who witnessed the incident did not say anything for a few days, but after careful reflection, they then told my brother and the management what they had witnessed. My brother immediately went to management and they told him to "stop making a big fuss over this". As a result, ONE of the CNA workers has been fired, but the other remains employed there. He has had testing for any possible bodily fluid diseases which he could have contracted, but is still bothered by the incident. I am so disappointed in what happened because my brother is the one who encouraged me to become an RN to help others, but I have reservations now about possibly working in "rural areas" because of what happened to him. I am currently in a large metropolitan area and have not experienced this type of behavior (at least not yet). I treat ALL of my patients the same no matter what race, nationality, gender, or sexual preference ( I am in an area with a large"alternative" lifestyle population). In my opinion 'PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE' no matter what they look like or believe. PLEASE let me know what avenues you may suggest for my brother to explore. He nor I want this to be "swept under the rug" because as healthcare professionals, I CAN NOT tolerate this type of behavior to no matter who it may happen. Please advise.

    So nurses, what is our role now? Unity?
