Has anyone noticed a strong double standard among male and female nurses? As a male nurse I feel that I have to be extra vigilant and careful of any actions around many female patients of many ages. I have seen a female nurse enter a room for a cath foley on a 35 y/o male and never think twice. I personally would never dream of even doing such a thing even with a chaperone.
I see these standards across the board with both patients and nurses. I have seen male nurses called dirty ole men and had have seen female nurse further instigate certain procedures with young/attractive male patients and nothing is ever said.
Why is that?
