168. Not that simple....
Edited on Thu Aug-26-10 09:51 PM by Jeff In Milwaukee
I work for a healthcare provider, and we had a similar situation where a mentally-disturbed patient demanded only caucasian nurses. If we had ignored her wishes, and the woman woke up suddenly to find a Hispanic of African American caregiver in her room, she could have gone ballistic and hurt herself or one of our nurses.

We're not going to risk the safety of our patients or our nursing staff. Period.
