Should Male Nurses Work with Female Patients?

I feel that it is fine. I don’t really care though I do feel strange with someone of the same sex doing my care. I’m not sure why. I just do.

I know that there is the stereotype that all nurses are female: but, if society is supposed to be equal opportunity and allow everyone the same rights, shouldn’t males have the rights to be nurses, too? Yes they should.

Also, what is all this junk that a male needs a witness and a female does not? In this day, the women are just as bad as the men. They’ll have sex with anything that walks, and they seem to have issues with self control just as bad as the men. They can have the same sexual attractions toward the opposite sex as men: therefore, the rules should apply for all of them across the board. Either they both need a witness or they both do not.

Why is it that a woman can do the procedures on a male, and not have a witness but a male cannot do the procedures on a female without having a witness?

Isn't that racist or discrimination of a kind?

Wouldn't it make sense that if a male needs witness to do his duties on a female, that a female needs a witness to do her duties on a male?

Sure, I think that makes a lot of sense.

Just think about it, some males may not like females doing their personal duties. As a matter of fact, I’ve dealt with some that have expressed this as I’ve helped with intimate care of friends of mine in the past for one reason or another. I don’t get all bent out of shape because they have different body parts. They need help. Why should they be neglected? I don’t shirk my duties because they are the opposite sex.

Then, there are others who prefer to have someone of the opposite sex such as I since there is a big thing about gays and lesbians now. You sometimes have to wonder, Is this person assisting with my care gay? Will that person have other things on their mind while caring for me? For me personally, I feel strange with someone of the same sex doing my personal care. I don’t know why. I just feel weird. And now that this whole thing with homosexuality has come about, I’m even more inclined to request the opposite sex if possible as I feel that having someone of the opposite sex care for me is a safety against this. Look at it this way, there is a risk. That is the kind of world we live in. And, it is also your choice. You have to weigh the benefits and risks in your own mind. The final decision is yours.

Most of my doctors have been males, and I do not require them to have a witness when dealing with me. My current physician is a male also. Personally, I feel strange seeing a female doctor as it seems out of place for me. It seems out of my norm though I’ve seen one very nice female doctor during my time and would strongly recommend her to anyone. My point? Anyone should be able to practice all forms of medicine free of discrimination.

I feel that people are just bent out of shape and take things too far. Sex is on the minds of everyone, and quite frankly, I think it’s stupid. My thoughts are that if they have the license and are qualified to do the job, I could care less.

I couldn't agree more. I have a care giver relief service that does non medical short term (3 hours or less) relief for care givers and because I am a male folks will not hire me to sit with thier female loved ones. Very frustrating and sad. I had prostate cancer and was left partially incontenant and haven't minded being taken care of by either sex. It was the nurturing that was the most important. Nurturing is what I provide to both men and women if they will let me.
