Dr. Susan Moore contracted COVID-19 late last year and turned to social media to air her grievances regarding her medical care, stating she was the victim of racist medical treatment. To discuss this tragic story and racism in medicine, I’ve invited Dr. Kadijah Ray, a pediatric anesthesiologist and founder of the Facebook group “Physician Woman SOAR”. Dr. Ray and I talked about patient advocacy, the barriers preventing people of color from getting into medicine, the history of racism in medicine, and how we can prevent tragedies like Dr. Moore’s from happening again.

I got Covid in December. When I saw this story I felt lucky that I didnt have to go to the hospital. People don't understand that racism is real and its systemic. This is a shame.

Thanks Doctor’s for putting the spot light on this situation. This is why a lot of older blacks and young blacks don’t go to the doctors, when something is wrong. If you feel as if know one cares then no one will really help you. Only take your money and pretend to help you. It’s all based on the greed of America. It’s set up for money not for care. Which is what’s wrong with the health- can you even say care system?

As a woman of color I am so terrified of going to the doctor for any serious medical issues. I’m scared of starting a family because of the amount of women who look like me being murdered by the people that are supposed to be assisting us through one of the most joyous days of our lives. My heart goes out to Dr. Moore and her family. This enrages me so much.

As an asthma kid, I actually experienced similar treatment. Had it not been for my mother, who is a nurse, advocating for me, I could have died as well. This is really just the tip of the iceberg. There are plenty of black men and women with the same story that didn’t have the knowledge or technology to advocate or report these issues. Cases like this also don’t help black people trust the medical profession any more than we already do, which isn’t much.

@Timothy HHH She may very well have been the victim of all of those things, but we'll never know because we'll only EVER get one side of the story. She could have been demanding ridiculous doses of IV opioids her entire stay - we just don't know. Personally, I think if you're going to get on social media and make specific accusations that should be a legal waver of HIPAA privacy rights
Timothy HHH

Pretty much this statement right. The hospital is bound by HIPAA and can make no comment on the situation. The patient can claim racism, sexism, classism, that she was assualted,raped,and threatened and the hospital cann't even defend itself because of HIPAA. As a doctor I feel Mike should have been more aware of the fact the hospital cann't do anything and there is zero repercussions for the patient to make bold false claims.

Honestly it feels like if your anything but a cis white male, when you got in for medical treatment you will be brushed off. If your a woman or LGBTQ+ "your dramatic" if you are a POC its "drug seeking" or "black people cant feel pain" or if you dress differently or have piercings and tattoos it's the same. Prejudice needs to stop. People need to judge others for behaviors not their appearance, gender/gender identity, sexuality, or race.

This is why it’s important to have a diverse group of leadership in healthcare and schools as well. All doctors aren’t compassionate and caring. A lot have this disgusting prideful demeanor and are only doing it for their ego and/or money. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if that doctor was racially stereotyping her. YES, they absolutely have racist people in healthcare as they are in any other profession. Start taking away licenses, that would be an awesome start.

This is so heartbreaking and I offer my condolences to Dr. Moore's family. No person should be treated like trash, as she was. It is especially shocking since her video evidence shows that she was definitely having labored breathing while in the hospital for treatment she should have received and didn't. If this happened to my family, I would grieve and sue the living shit out of that hospital (pardon my French).

The "white doctors" are to blame if a black patient does not take her medicine. OK Could it not also be that many African Americans are already expecting to be treated incorrectly or insufficiently and that the doctor is not sympathetic to them and therefore they take a defensive stance? The woman in the video says that all doctors in black neighborhoods and cities must now be black in order for there to be trust? How racist is that please ???

In the US, it always seems to be a matter of insurance. She says there was an evaluation that cancer patients were treated differently depending on their skin color. Did this investigation also look at how they were all insured? I don't live in the US, but I hear a lot so I have questions. I think African Americans make up about 13% of the population. Are these 13% proportionally covered by the same health insurance as the other population groups? What I mean is that unfortunately there are different insurances in the USA and there should even be people who are not insured at all - what madness - that would never exist in Germany! If you now assume that 50% of the remaining groups have first-class insurance and 40% maybe normal insurance. Then there remained 10% who are dependent on basic insurance. How is the distribution among the African Americans?
Cdnest Acum 4 Zile
If the doctor had to treat so many African Americans who were really drug addicts, then of course he was prejudiced by bad experiences. Perhaps there is a neighborhood with drug addicts near the hospital and in the other neighborhoods the normal African Americans are underrepresented or they choose another hospital for their treatment? Then why doesn't he do a drug test right away? Then he knows who is standing in front of him. btw - drug addicts can also get Covid-19!

A family reported abuse at New Hanover Regional hospital in Wilmington NC but the hospital took up for staff. This hospital needs a continuous federal investigation for the treatment of minorities, undeserved and underprivileged. My family member could have died and hospital staff get away with it. The hospital tried to make my family member who was the patient feel like the bad person.

A Doctor is like a teacher teaching children. As you chose these careers you know that you will be dealing with all diverse of people. The training needs to start at the beginning of pursuing such careers and Do better by treating people as Human beings first and foremost instead of being dictated by people making large donation to that organization and hospital. STOP with the stereotypes of all human it's a big problem across the board.

She isn't the only person who felt mistreated. I have heard blacks aren't properly cared for. Here in Canada, race isn't as big an issue as your condition. If you look like death, you get put out of your misery if you family walk away for a moment. My dad and father in law were on deaths door, including coma and unable to speak. My dad had an angel (friend) by his side. She researched what the docs were giving him. They gave him meds and took him up abruptly which side affects was permanent brain damage and coma. Which happened. She addressed it and the doc said he couldn't go back in time. He then called my sister and told my sister to get rid of this lady.... NO. LIKE NO! YOU ALREADY SCREWED UP AND WE CAN'T BE THERE.. she stayed by my dad's side and a couple months later he could talk again. Also. When my mom was bleeding (long period) , the hospital left my mom in a room and locked her in there. She realized what was happening. She prayed. Hours later a male Nurse came in and said, oh you are still alive.).... Um. Then she found out she had uterus cancer. And hospital social worker told her to give up and die.... I have a 8 year old sister, pretty sure my mom wants to live. A nurse said to my mom, "as far as I am concerned, you are already dead." my mom said she watched people mistreated, not just her. And then one of the hospitals mom complained about, had a complaint in the news from a visitor in Canada for the Olympics. Terrible.

This clearly is institutional injustice and discrimination at the top of the system. Its tolerated because the entire institution is corrupt and needs to be exposed and eradicated. Once that is done then bias and discriminatory practices and ideals will no longer be tolerated or acceptable. Equal treatment for all under the umbrella of constitutional rights inclusive of medical treatment is mandatory.

This is why I try to only go to other physicians that are also poc. Way too many times I’ve had doctors that do not take my pain seriously. I have a documented history of PCOS.. my first time I felt a cyst rupture , I went to the hospital. I kept vomiting and the pain was excruciating. I waited 5+ hours to be seen. I had an ultrasound done, only to be told that it was a “UTI” which I knew was completely wrong. I then went to another hospital where I was seen by a doctor that was a poc. I was in and out within an hour and they had told me that the previous hospital documented fluid in my ovaries from a large ruptured cyst that my body was having a severe reaction to, yet did nothing about it.

i feel very strongly about this topic. If you feel that you cannot effectively give the best treatment that you can to every single patient you encounter, do NOT become a doctor. There are many other professions where you can “help” people that will not cost them their lives. Too many have lost their lives due to prejudice.

A black 28 year old and has experience more racial and sexist comments from a lot of doctors from the time I was 16 until I turned about 22. I have more doctors trying to give me a hysterectomy at 16 instead of trying to figure out what was actually wrong with me. I have tried to take this to multiple lawyers they told me I don't have a case because there was no type of malpractice done. But it took me until about now to find good great doctors that it doesn't matter what color my skin is they treat me like a human being.

As someone who is white and perceived as a woman, I have needed to provide proof of my medical problems prior to getting taken seriously many many times. I've had doctors tells me I'm not in pain, I've had them send me home. I can't imagine how much harder it is for a black woman to be heard in a medical situation :( Also I'd like to add that after a lifetime of people doubting your experiences, you learn to self-censor. You learn to doubt the severity of your OWN symptoms, so the fact that she protested so strongly is even more evidence of how much she was suffering.

This is not just a race issue I’m medicine, but an arrogance in thinking a patient knows nothing about their own body that contributes to their care!! I’m totally white. A decade before covid, my dad came down with a horrible and sudden sickness. He was two states away from his home staying with us for a few days. I purposely took him to a hospital surrounded by a retirement community thinking it would be the best place for a 78-yr-old. The ER doc was terrific and thought it was likely pancreatitis. After he was admitted, his primary care was assigned to an EXTREMELY ARROGANT young female Persian doctor. Naturally he was dehydrated, but when he wasn’t excreting urine, they continued to pump him full of fluids. Seemed wise, but when he had gained 28 lbs in five days - and his bladder was empty, they continued with the fluids. My assertive sister contacted the ARROGANT doctor AND an administrator and no change. They were loooking at kidney failure, did a painful biopsy and thought he had cirossis of the liver (as a non drinker) and everything else deadly. We finally checked him out fearing he’d be dead if we didn’t. He saw a liver specialist who determined NO signs of cirrhosis ... and agreed that he’d had an accuse bout of pancreatitis just like the ER doc. It took him 18 months to recover from the hospital stay where they NEVER actually listened to any of us!! Doesn’t matter what color anyone in the scenario is if they don’t respect the patient!

When my mom was having me, a doctor at the hospital was doing some sort of procedure that involved inserting some kind of instrument into her to check something. I don't remember the details. What I do remember is that it hit me Jin the head just over my eye. My mom said she told the doctor that whatever he'd done had hurt here and that he told her she was imagining this. She wasn't. I still have the scar on my body. It just migrated down further as I got older. You can see the outline and even a number from whatever instrument it was. It's slowly going away as I get older, but the point remains that he didn't believe her. Woman aren't treated right at hospitals, especially in birth related situations. We're always "overreacting" to everything. Especially minorities. In fact, the entire history of womans health is a horror show, especially the reproductive health sector. Look up how the speculum was created. The horrifying experiments they did on slaves. My mom was just another victim in a system that still thinks we don't feel pain in the way every other human being does. It's disgusting. It's been going on literally forever. It needs to stop.

Talking about topics of racism reminds me of the time i went to the hospital due to extreme stomach pains and the doctor that saw me saw that i was Asian and literally asked me "have you been eating any.... odd animals.. like cats or dogs" it felt racist to me but i'm not sure if it's a normal question or not and if it was racist i'm not sure if he was referencing the yearly ritual in some places in china where they bludgeon and cook dogs because they think the fear makes the meat taste better or if it was a reference to places like vietnam where they had to starting literally eating their pets to survive or if it was just saying that asian people eat a lot of weird types of animals such as whale, if anyone can inform me if that'a a normal question please inform me, but keep in mind the pauses were there and every few minutes he gave me weird looks

It makes my blood boil more with every story I have heard like this, but I also know that no matter how much I empathize, how much I fight to change the institutionalized racism that has created situations like this, how much it breaks my heart to know there are people in the world like that, how much pain I feel in my heart for all the black experiences I've learned about, I will still never truly understand. No matter how much it hurts me to hear and learn about these experiences, I alao know that I am so damn privileged that I could choose to stop, and it will never impact my life again because I am white, so I will never experience this level of disgusting treatment. But I will never forget hearing the pained screaming and sobbing from my stepsister when she watched live as her classmate Dreasjon Reed was killed by police, and holding her while she sobbed for the loss of another young black man, and as she cried in fear for her future babies because she's terrified to have a son because the world is so cruel to young black men. I can only hope that for every black story of pain we hear, someone will make a change that prevents another black story of pain just like it. It's devastating to me that black people even have to share their painful experiences like this so white people can "learn to do better." Why the fuck are there still white people who need taught this? We should already be better. Its unimaginable to me that this is something people need to learn. And again, that is such a privilege for me to have to choose to discover the cruelty of racism on my own, because I will never directly experience it. I plan to go into the medical field, and I intend to constantly keep my biases and my coworkers' biases in check to make sure all my patients get the care they deserve and are listened to and respected as people. White people don't just need to "do better," because that doesn't require a mental change. You can "do better" actions without putting any heart or emotion into it and just fake it. We need to be better. I dont have any fears about my children experiencing this, but I am terrified for my stepdad and step siblings, and all of their kids. I fear for my lovely coworker/friend and her family. I will continue to pray that one day their children's first question about race can be like mine. My first understanding of race was very nonchalant and as simple as "well, people look like their family. My parents have blonde hair and brown hair, so I have blonde hair. Everyone in my family has light skin, so I do too. My aunt has dark skin and dark hair, but she is married to my uncle, but she looks like her family." Meanwhile, my coworker's first experience with recognizing race was when a girl walked up to her in Kindergarten and said "Is that your real hair? Because my daddy said (n-word) can't grow long hair." While I pray for my black friends' and family's children to not have those experiences, I will also continue to fight to make change, because I'm not naive enough to believe that prayer is enough. White people must change. Yes, even you. Even me. Even if you've never said the n-word or looked down on someone for their skin color. White people MUST change. Our black friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and fellow humans have been through too damn much at our hands. It may not be at your hands, but that doesn't mean it's not your job to fight for change. So you didnt mistreat a black person, but did your grandparents vote for someone who supported red lining and disenfranchising black voters? Cool, guess what? You didn't cause the problem, but it is your job today to vote for those things to be repealed. If you don't, black suppression is now at your hands. WE. MUST. CHANGE.

Idk what it's like in the USA and it's 100% possible that it was racism, but I don't think this is just a racism issue... Because as a white girl I had something like this happen to me too. I was just lucky it was Lyme disease and not something deadly... I think the real issue is some doctors not taking their patients seriously. Racism just makes it happen more often to POC, but I don't think it's the main cause... Some doctors just need to accept that they aren't all knowing and that not listening to your patient is absolutely disgusting.

You are not the one in pain, the patient is. You are the one to help with finding out what it could and not be. Even criminals get treated well than this.

Yes it's time white Doctors spoke about this because when a black doctor speaks up she isn't privileged enough for her voice to be heard thanks Dr Ray and Dr Mike for speaking up where many go silent as a black lawyer this hospital needs to be sued and revoke those hypocritical oaths May the Lord protect her from beyond

Black women need to be heard and believed more. RIP to the countless black women who lost their lives due to lack of care through illnesses, child birth, injuries, and everything else.

Before even finishing this video, I can say this is common. Exactly how my sister's fiance died. He was diagnosed with having fluid in his lungs and then given water pills. The hospital sent him home, ALONE, IN A CAB, the cab driver looked up and he was slumped over, unresponsive just blocks away from the hospital. He turned around, back to the hospital, and my sister's fiance was pronounced dead around the time he got back to the hospital.

She would've been alive today if she would've been treated adequately and fairly like everyone else 😔

It is so hard to break that bias. I admit there was racial bias in my home, growing up. And I knew it was wrong. I remember as a teenager, I would sometimes think something even remotely racist, because that was how I was raised. And I would catch myself and think to my self "No thats not right. You can't think that way." Even when you notice it, biases are so hard to correct in our behaviors and all we can do is notice the behavior, never act on it, and break the habit of thinking about it. Now when a friend or family member says something racist, I call them out. If you don't bother catching it and stop thinking in that way, at least keep it to yourself so you don't spread it. We're the last line of defense in stopping racism. Don't spread it to your children or to other peoples children.
