Essentially I upset the hospital, instructor and patient. I was not welcome back by any of them. Patient was in labor and I "stared" at the patient. My staring may have been realizing I wasn't welcome. I did not see anything, the patient was completely covered. I thought the same thing about if this situation was a female student would the outcome be the same? It was a stupid move on my part, maybe I should have ensured that the patient wanted me in their room and/or was escorted by my instructor. I believe the food tray was complimentary for the father. I set it on the far wall way away from the patient. I was never within less than 15 feet of the patient.
Like I said, stupid move, but wondered what folks thought. I believe I am through with nursing.
