New nursing position, unsure of requirement?

by FeministRN FeministRN (New) New

I have started a second shift at the local country prison as a correctional LPN. However something is concerning...

They are requiring me to wear a groin guard, all males and females must wear one, of course cups for males and plastic guard pad for female. This is their requirement after several male and female nurses were kicked there by inmates.

Some questions...

Should I wear one? If so, which one should I get as a female?

Ive never heard of this before in the correctional setting.
