Eeek...my older patients are sweet about it and humorous, so it comes across as non-threatening and nice (at least to me) and I always joke w/them that my hubby would view askance my bringing home any more pets ;]
The younger men are the ones that usually creep me out. One patient's son kept following me into other patients' rooms (had to repeatedly cite HIPAA before he was dissuaded) then called me 30min after he left to tell me how gorgeous I was but that I was too uptight and needed.
..well, you get the picture? Another took the question "Where is your pain located?" as an invitation to wrap his arm around my waist and pull me up close Needless to say, I unwrapped his arm from around myself and proceeded to let him know I was perfectly capable of understanding his words and to please not touch me again. I did not enter that room alone again and was most relieved when a bed became available and I was able to send him to the floor
Sometimes I wonder what is wrong with people...
