I am currently working as an aide while I am in nursing school.
My patient is younger and currently his family is providing for all of his needs. While my patient at times can be difficult he's not my worry - it's the mom.
The mom has started asking me questions that go far beyond what anyone should. I try to skirt the questions, but due to her convictions she's rather persistent. I need the job, the money, and the experience but I am growing increasingly uncomfortable in this situation and have no idea what to do. The last time I reported an issue to the agency I was told something along the lines of, "Well you're mature so it sounds like you have this handled."
I knew I'd get psych experience from this case, but I never thought it would be the family AND the patient.
