Please don’t ask your Dutch nurse for sex

Drawtheline

Dutch nurses' union NU'91 is making it clear, once and for all, that sexual services are not part of standard medical care. They shouldn't have to, but such is life. As we speak, they're preparing a national ad campaign called "I Draw The Line Here," which you can see above in its native Dutch. The catalyst was a complaint the union received from a 24-year-old nurse whose patient demanded "sexual services (from her) as part of his care at home." His behavior, though disgusting and unacceptable, apparently wasn't as random or rare as it sounds. The complainant said the man's other nurses were game for it, and she almost got fired when she wouldn't heed their example. This certainly puts our health care debate into fresh perspective.
