Quote from ssouthernyankee
I currently have a 9 year old girl I am taking care of on unit. She was raped resulting in surgical repair to entire pelvic floor and also needed a colostomy. As I change her sheets and such I just don't know what to do. I cry everytime I walk in there. I just want to hold her. She isn't allowed visitors and she is so scared. My heart is breaking. Any advice?
You got hugs here, Sweet Soul. I have to share this even though your post left me in tears. I had the opposite patient which I had to care for. The one's that were the offenders. The Sons of ******* that were the rapers of children. They were in my care because in prison they cut their wrist and said they were going to kill themselves. They weren't suicidal, they knew if they remained in prison they would be dead. Prisoners have a very crazy social structure. If you kill a cop[ or lawyer or judge you are treated like a king. You rape a child you are dirt. you better watch your front and your back for you will get rape yourself. any way I had to call them sir or else they would say that you disrespected them. so I feel your pain.
