A new survey of 900 nurses found that about 80% of nurses have experienced or seen racist treatment by patients, and 60% have experienced or seen it by colleagues. Few nurses ever report these incidents though.

Usha Lee McFarling, a national science correspondent for STAT, talks to host Scott Tong about the findings.
