How do you deal with dirty old men? - page 6

I'm going to start working as a CNA soon, and although I'm looking forward to it, I'm dreading the perverted old men. While enrolled in my CNA class, the first resident I was assigned to asked me if... Read More

    We had a man at my work... we'll, when giving care to the pt in the bed next to him, he slid back the room curtian and began brushing the buttocks of the CNA closest to him (with her back to him as she was caring for the pt in the next bed.) She told him firmily that it was inapprorate and to stop and pulled back the curtain... a few minutes later the curtain slid back and this time he reached between her legs...

    20 mintues later I was having a chat on the phone with his psych nurse practioner... he is curently taking the female hormone Provera He's a pussycat now!

    Yep, if you can't teach them, you can medicate them!

    Is Provera given by a psych NP?

    IF they are demented, I state loudly "only my husband can touch me there and you are not him, don't do that again." It's worked pretty well.
    If they are a&ox3, I state that their behavior is inappropriate, can be considered assault, and if it happens again I will consider it assault and will take appropriate action.

    The stupidest thing I have ever seen was when we had a charge nurse put a patient in a room that had only one entry, and the patient had a history of stalking nurses and had raped one nurse. What was she thinking when she put him in that room, with a roommate that was total care in the bed FARTHEST from the door. I was charge and we moved him to a room that shared a bath with the room beside it so that there was more than one entry/exit to his room.

    Yep, Provera, psych NP, she stated that it is often used to gentle sexually inapproprate pts, and it worked too!

    I am sorry but I must make a comment about that. Women shouldn't have to feel responsible for encouraging sexual advances just because they wear make up. This goes hand in hand with women being accused of encouraging rape because they dress "inappropriately". And of women being stoned unless they cover themselves completely in certain parts of the world. Wanting to look pretty or presentable by putting makeup should be every woman's right, and we are not the ones who need to change.
    I'm soo glad, I'm not the only one who was thinking that. When i read that, i thought I can't belive I'm reading this. I agree it does not matter what you look like.
