I am a nurse in a facility where I am only one of three white, English speaking nurses! It is a MUST they should have to speak English! Most times they can not understand what I am saying and they effects patient care! The more they use it, maybe the better they will get?
PLUS....its rude as hell when they stand around and Im sure talk shit right in my face!

Communication is the root cause to all errors in medicine. I would like to see the English speaking staff sue because the Phillps are creating a hostile work environment. Wouldn't be hard to do. I have worked (im a nuse) with the Phillps and they band together and are the meanest women I know.

Ummm, the only thing I suggest for you to do, is please go back to school & get your GED. I honestly have NO idea what you're trying to prove, you make no sense what so ever.
By "races" do you mean racist?

Trying to be political is not working for you, I am actually embarrassed for you....sorry.

You should really get your sh*t straight! By races, do u mean racist??? Maybe your a Beamer trying to act intelligent, in that case, is it right for your people to come to America and expect Americans to know your damn language??? I didn't think so either, so gtfo!!! And how did you end up in the hospital? Whatever the reason maybe, how did you pay for it? I bet it's paid through medical! That's right!

It's funny that you all say that about us Filipinos. Most of the nurses that are speaking to their patients cannot understand English. The only reason why most Filipinos came to the US, is to live better lives. So i don't know why you all are being so judgmental. Because when i go to the hospital or to a clinic, i see workers speaking Spanish to the patients. So why judge?
