    I just wanted to throw in my experience on my first day of clinicals which by now was 16 years ago. I was so nervous I about started crying while my teacher was passing out the assignments and I had even been a CNA for a few years before that, but this was different! Anyway, my patient was probably a 55 year old man and he had genital warts. However, he had never had them treated so by the time I saw them it looked like he had 3 large heads of cauliflower under his penis. I've never seen anything like it again either! Poor guy, I guess he was just too embarassed to see a doctor. Nowadays we know that that virus can cause cervical cancer. He was kind enought to let my ENTIRE class of 15 watch as his nurse did a sterile dressing change on his warts. I saw he died a few months later.

    P.S. I have just completed my first month of employment as a CNA in a LTC. I LOVE IT, and by the way, I have finally learned how to keep my pants up. My secret? Suck in and tie 'em up tight.

    This is actually a violation of the resident's right to be treated with dignity and should be reported to the state omnbudsman
