situation. Verbal abuse is common. I am white, black patients make racial comments to me all the time. Black staff hears the same from white patients. Blacks AND white patients are derogatory towards Asians. One Dr. who is Asian says she won't do anything for Patient X until he is "respectful" (his comments aren't racial). I say to that Dr., Grow the hell up. It's the job. Patient lying on the floor should be picked up unless she physically resists. Normally "I don't want any black/white/Asian/male/female people near me" stated by a patient is honored to the extent praticable. If you don't know how to not personalize nasty comments from disabled people you shouldn't be dealing with them.
