    This happens to nurses also. No patient should be allowed to request a “white” doctor based on the current doctor’s complexion, country of origin,sex, etc. When I worked on pediatrics (RN), we explained that we have different races and ethnicities. We cannot comply with racist/ bigotry request. I’ve been called the “N” word but upon speaking with the patient s doctor the patient was sent home. Staff should be supported by the hospital for which they work.
