      Patients and doctors might have different political opinions but what if the doctor was in a position to act out against the patient?

      ‘A fourth-year medical student at Wake Forest University in North Carolina bragged on Twitter about purposely missing a vein while drawing blood because a patient asked about her pronoun pin. ‘

      The school, wake forest, later went on to defend the medical student.

      Any act of violence is wrong as an abuse survivor when a patient assaults me, why is that any different than accepting domestic violence. No one should be hitting or verbally abusing anyone. I use my smarts to deal with the issue without pampering them because that escalates the issue. No one should retaliate in any job against anyone but your employer and the law need to protect the employee as well.
