There are far too many folks out there who CAN wipe their own butt, but would rather have YOU do it!!!!!
BTW, since, I believe, ALL of nursing comprises some form of butt-wiping, both literally AND figuratively, I submit my percentage as 100%.
We know there are pt's out there who can wipe their own butts but, In ICU there are far more who need nursing help. If a pt can wipe their own, when it comes to me giving them care,,,,they WILL wipe thier own. (that's part of being a good nurse too!)
