    Are you serious? Because the Dr was wrong. On record. Being black is not wrong.

    Again, I can't continue with you Sorry and goodnight!

    Either you are in charge of your care and request a different doctor/nurse, or the hospital is in charge and the tell you who your doctor/nurse is. Rasism is subjective. Yes, in this case he was outright racist, but if he was worthy of criminal neglect where do you draw the line. My saying before I could understand wanting to request a nurse that spoke better English could be taken as racist by some. Wanting a woman OB over a man could be considered discriminatory.

    Charging someone with criminal neglect for requesting a different nurse or doctor would make it so that you could no longer request a different doctor or nurse for any reason including poor care.

    Just to throw this out there, I would not request a different practitioner based on race. But I do not like to have obese caretakers. (I am not talking a little overweight, but morbidly obese) I am sure I could be accused of discrimination on that

    I'm with Melis...I don't understand how you can compare wanting a different nurse or doctor due to the care they are giving you or the attitude they have with you to someone wanting a different one because of the color of their skin. It's not even in the same ballpark. One has NOTHING to do with the other. Refusing someone's racist request does not set a precedent for people who have specific issues with the behavior of or treatment by medical professionals.

    I never said that.

    I did say that I felt it would hinder, how do I want to word this?...changes not due to quality of care? Like gender for example.

    I'm no expert, but I don't see how it would. The hospital simply can't support discrimination, it doesn't mean they can't address legitimate issues.

    Do you guys also believe that I should have the right to walk into a restaurant and demand that my black waitress not serve me because I want a white one? Or that no black cooks prepare my food? Can I go to my local pharmacy and demand that no Indian touch my pills? Or refuse to let the black mechanic give me an oil change and demand that the white guy do it?

    Which is fair enough. I just think any non problem request then has to be avoided. I shouldn't be able to request a different gender or because I don't care for their personality (provided that they are giving me accurate and good care).
