    I'm sorry you're going through a rough emotional time right now with this pig of a doc and your young patient. I know how you feel, allowing a patient to get inside of you is tough. I've done it myself. :hugs:

    Now, about the doc not washing his hands. Just the other day, I was astounded when I saw the INFECTIOUS DISEASE team go into a room where the patient is MRSA and Acynobactor (sp?) positive, WITHOUT GOWNS OR GLOVES!! It just frosted my arse!! The attending ID took his little posse into the room, they all stood around the patient and the attending used his own steth (not the blue isolation one!) on the patient. He did not wash before going in the room, nor did he use the sanitizer before hand.

    He did, however, on the way out, deign to use the sanitizer outside her door. Course, he was the only one who did. He didn't wipe off his scope though.

    I just couldn't believe this WAS the ID doctors doing it. Blows yer mind, I tell ya.
