I work in an all male prison that houses men committed under a sexually violent offender law and also men who have psychiatric disorders. It has always been an unwritten practice that if a male inmate needs an assessment or care to his genital area a male nurse performs these tasks unless it is an emergency, can't be delayed until a male nurse is present, or there are no male nurses employed. We now have a male nurse who is refusing to help out unless he is directly assigned to the units that house the guys that need these cares. Has anyone else run into this? I would appreciate anyone's thoughts even if you don't work with offenders regarding "same gender personal cares" issues. Thanks!
