Sorry for being white?
March 26, 2018
The contentious new code telling nurses to say,"sorry" for being
white when treating indigenous patients has even been slammed by
The controversial change to the code, which came into effect on the
first of March, was brought to public attention in January this
year by Australian Conservatives' leader Cory Bernardi.
Channel 7's Today Tonight reports, this is the latest in a string
of politically correct changes for the health industry. But this
one has lead to calls for the nursing board boss to resign and even
some aboriginal leaders have described it as potentially damaging.
Senator Bernardi said, "What we've got is a bunch of do-gooders,
who think that this is actually going to help people where in
reality it's only dividing society."
"It only takes a single complain from a patient to say, 'you didn't
acknowledge your white privilege, I felt culturally under threat or
subsumed by you,' and the nurse can find themselves hauled before
the tribunal and subject to a code of conduct complaint."
Graeme Haycroft, from the Nurses professional Association of
Queensland said,"Nurses are very caring people. They're always
respectful, it's in there genes. This is the thing that's so
outrageous because the fundamental presumption of this code is that
nurses are currently racist. This is introducing a form of
apartheid into the health system."
Senator Bernardi said, "They're trying to install this concept that
everything Western is terrible and everything indigenous is
fantastic. Everyone has equal opportunity in this country. You can
get an education, you can work very hard. If you're going to say
there's white privilege in a nurse and a midwife
