EXPRESS,Jan. 2, 2008 page 1: Race Gap Seen in Pain Care: Study Apropos of White given narcotics more than minorities in ERs. Emergency room doctors are prescribing strong narcotis more often to patients who complain of pain, but minorities are less likely to get them than whites, a new study finds. Even for the severe pain of kidney stones, minorities were prescribed narcotics such as oxycodone and morphine less frequently than whites. The analysis of more than 150,000 emergency room visits over 13 years found differences in prescribing by race in both urban and rural hospitals,in all U.S. regions and for every type of pain. "The gaps between whites and nonwhites have not appeared to close at all,said study co-author Dr. Mark Pletcher of the University of California, San Francisco. My query: Would folks of Chinese ancestry be considered as Whites of Nonwhites? Since Asians are not white,I have reason to believe that we are Nonwhites. However,I remember reading news re a US Court classified Chinese as Whites. How about Latinos? American Indians? As Minorites? Any comments? I would be willing to learn from readers of www.Blogger.com. Have a good New Year 2008 to ponder such as an interesting issue in a multicultural USA in the 21st century. Francis Shieh a.k.a.
