As a CNA in a hospital rehab unit, there are many, many patients that will not let me help them ambulate to the bathroom, dress and undress, etc etc etc.
It is frustrating when one out of every three patients will not let you take care of them. The Docs on this unit are male.
Do I take it personally? Nope.
It puts a strain on the rest of the healthcare team though.
Im actually more surprised these days when I tell a female patient that it's time to into a night gown and they take their shirt off without hesitation.
When that happens, I think "Faith in humanity restored"
