Male pericare again---it happened

  1. It finally happened. Another person and I were performing pericare on this male and he got an erection. It didn't bother me as much as I thought it would. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who replied to my other post. Reading about it before it happened really helped.

    The guy was/is pretty young for LTC (late 40's early 50's maybe) so I half expected it to happen. I believe he's in there for Parkinsons. I think he was more embarassed than we were. I made sure to cover him up as soon as we had finished so as to hopefully ease his embarassment. To boot, this guy is a priest (I think catholic because he goes by "father" x). It was more ackward after because of who he was but while we were performing care, it didn't really bother me that much.
