Describe 1-2 cultural norms that you must be respectful of
At work, I commonly care for clients from the Jewish culture. One important cultural norm to be mindful of is Shabbat, an observed period of rest and abstention from work which begins every Friday at sundown and ends Saturday after nightfall. As such, healthcare professionals should avoid scheduling appointments or treatments on these days unless absolutely necessary. Additionally, when providing care during this time it’s important to recognize dietary restrictions such as avoiding pork and shellfish; specifically Lamb or Ba’al can only be consumed if they are certified kosher by reliable institutions so as not to offend religious beliefs or practices.
