at a recent unit staff meeting our new director, a lmsw, made the comment that he is proud that all the "guys" are willing to clean up "poopy diapers". i found this extremely offensive. we have one male rn and a couple male techs that do the same jobs as their female counterparts. i don't quite understand why the "guys" should be congratulated for doing a basic nursing task; it surely isn't beneath them because they are men. i told our director that being part of the nursing staff meant all patient care was fair game, male or female. he seemed surprised that i was offended, but honestly what planet is this guy from?
