Racism, discrimination prevalent in nursing, new survey shows
A new survey of 900 nurses found that about 80% of nurses have experienced or seen racist treatment by patients, and 60% have experienced or seen it by colleagues. Few nurses ever report these incidents though.
Our editorial partners at STAT spoke with a number of nurses about their own experience with racism in the profession, about what efforts there are to end it and whether those efforts are working.
Usha Lee McFarling, a national science correspondent for STAT, talks to host Scott Tong about the findings.
