A true story: An elderly Vietnamese woman collapses and is rushed to the hospital. There she is told that she needs to have a blood work-up. She agrees to have her blood draw but after insists that they put it back into her after they run the tests. She speaks some English and so the nurses and doctors try to explain the situation. Some of the doctors jokingly allude there could be some sort of underlying psychiatric situation. Would you send the blood out for testing or not? What are the intercultural conflicts at work in this situation? We'll talk in class and you will learn what the real out come was.
