    Always two sides to every story. I quit a job because I had to take care of an HIV+ patient. The WHOLE story is because he was a para that was abusive to staff and other patients, tried to infect ANYONE that came within "spitting distance", on the call light every 5 minutes (not an exageration) and management refused to staff better than 3:50 (1 nurse and 2 CNA's) on nights. If you say you would have stayed, you are either a liar, stupid, or have a serious martyr complex.
    I haven't read the other answers. This is a different case from what appears to be presented initially. I'd turn tail and run at your situation. Or use the full body protection like in the Naked Gun 33 and 1/3 movie. I love that movie!

    There are two sides to every story. If he was having consensual sex with another nursing home resident then I could see how they might want to kick him out. After all, it would be a HIPPA violation to tell other residents his HIV status and nursing home residents have a right to have consensual sex in the nursing home so what do you do.
    if he was having consensual sex within 24 hours of moving from out of state at 74 years old, largely confined to a wheelchair, he's got some serious game. the last time I moved that far I think I slept for 24 hours...and I was 19 years old...haha. remember, he got kicked out before he had even slept in this facility twice.

    You cannot catch HIV from spit.

    good point. I don't think I would trust a spitter to be just a spitter and not escalate. Just my own paranoia.
