    Nursing Times claims almost one in ten Nurse's have an affair with a patient in their care

    THOUSANDS of nurses believe it is justified to break the taboo on having an affair with a patient in their care.
    Almost one in 10 nurses think starting a relationship with one of their patients is acceptable while one in six said they knew of a colleague who had a sexual relationship with a patient they were looking after.
    The findings, published by the Nursing Times, will add weight to the controversial remarks by Conservative peer Lord Mancroft that nurses are “promiscuous” and “unprofessional”.
    Mancroft has faced a huge backlash after claiming that nurses discussed their sexual and drinking exploits in front of him while he was being treated at the Royal United hospital in Bath last summer.

    The survey’s findings suggest a significant proportion of Britain’s 400,000 nurses are prepared to run the risk of sanctions – which in extreme cases could entail being struck off – for sleeping with patients. They also reveal that relationships between nurses and patients are not uncommon.
    In January the Council for Healthcare Regulatory Excellence (CHRE) issued strict new rules reminding nurses that they face disciplinary action if they embark on a sexual relationship with a current patient.
    The rules also say that relationships with former patients will often be deemed unacceptable. The regulations have proved contentious with nurses who say many such relationships end in marriage.
    The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) says the survey findings, of 3,600 nurses, are “very concerning”. Dr Peter Carter, general secretary of the RCN, says a relationship with a current patient can never be condoned but believes relationships with former patients are acceptable in some circumstances. Carter also disputes that the findings support Mancroft’s claim that nurses are promiscuous.
    The peer claimed nurses boasted of their drunken behaviour and sexual conquests while he was recovering from blood poisoning at the Royal United hospital last July.
    This is not the first time Mancroft has criticised the health service. The peer was treated successfully for heroin addiction in America and in a Lords debate in 1991 accused the National Health Service of being the “biggest supplier of addictive drugs in the world”.
    Mancroft – who went to Eton and is a member of Pratt’s club in London, as well as being a former master of the Beaufort Hunt in Gloucestershire – says he believes it is his duty to speak out on sensitive issues, even if it makes him unpopular.
    He told the peers last week that he owed his life to the fact that his wife had “kidnapped” him from the Bath hospital, where he claims he received sub-standard care, and took him to the Chelsea and Westminster hospital in London. Mancroft did not name the Royal United hospital in the debate but its identity later emerged in the media.
    David Cameron, the Conservative leader, has asked Lord Strathclyde, his party’s leader in the Lords, to rebuke Mancroft over his comments. Cameron said: “He should think more carefully before he opens his mouth. I completely disagree with what he said. I think it doesn’t reflect the incredibly hard work that nurses do.”
    The chief executive of the Royal United hospital NHS Trust has written to Mancroft inviting him to discuss his concerns.

    funny, that.

    I've always thought nurses were sexy as hell.

    I've also known a few nurses who were bat-shit crazy....enough to make me never get involved with a nurse.

    fighting the contradiction in terms has been a problem for me for years

    Well you let me know how that turns out for you

    Notice they didn't mention that these nurses probably aren't the ones you're thinking of, curvaceous blonds in tight short uniforms, but more than likely short and dumpy with bad teeth.

    eh...a hot girl who happens to be a nurse just gets a little hotter in my book. maybe something about the fact that they are supposedly caring, helpful, smart individuals.

    if they are dumpy and have bad teeth, i just appreciate what they do

    well hey...you can't paint EVERYBODY with the same brush, can you? to be fair, the ONE nurse i have in mind who is actually bat-shit crazy, based on her attitude and meds, is skewing the stats quite a bit just with her level of bat-shit craziness

    my friend has time stamped audio of her psychoticness...one minute telling him she wants to have another kid, the next minute telling him she is taking him to court and that he is a dead beat dad

    but that may just be due to the double X chromosome

    Could it also be something about the fact that these ladies are more than happy to pin a guy down and shove a thermometer where the sun don't shine?

    That's not the only thing I've seen them shove into places. Try the largest cath she could find for a well endowed punk that wouldn't give her a urine sample. It hurts just remembering it.

    Someone needs to send the ten-percenters my way.

    I always seem to wind up getting Gretta Goon or Mrs. Marlboro Country for a nurse. Hell, Morticia Addams would be an improvement.

    I'd like to find an attractive male nurse that isn't either insane or gay.

    Well, I guess it is good news that my wife is getting out of the ER business and into the labor and delivery. Babies and new mothers don't leave her to many folks to cheat with.
