sorry people but nurses and doctors, male or female, are first human. They hide behind their so called professionalism to cover up their own intrest. if you do not believe me just look at the disparity between male and female nurses. Male nurses cannot take care of female patients without a chaperone, female nurses can take care of male patients without one. Female doctors do not have to have a male chaperone when examining a male patient, yet male doctors have to have a female chaperone when examining a female patient. If you could listen to some of the "girl talk" about male patients it would scare you to death, they discuss everything from a males physical looks to how to humilate a male patient so he will be compliant with their wishes. I have had so many surgeries that it doesnt bother me anymore, but I find it so funny how people believe female nurses dont care and dont enjoy the oppurnity to take a good look or even a good feel.
it's their job to look at it or else he can't give them the correct treatment.
i am 29 ys old male i went to the er for injury to the groin the doc ordered a ua instead of giving me time to go to the restroom or even ask me the nurse's cathiterized me i heard the doc say i need a ua and the nurse asked to cath me because she had a student
Yes, female nurses do. I am not an attractive man by any stretch of the imagination, but on at least a couple occasions while the doctor was examining me, the nurses had their eyes fixed on my genitals even though they had no need to do so. One of them noticed when I caught her staring and started blushing. If a man did the same thing to a female patient, people would call him a pervert.
I think they do it because they have to. I had surgery recently and i got stiches just above my waist. I was laying in bed with just a hospital gown on when the nurse came in to check my stiches. I tried to show her my stiches without exposing myself to her but i couldn't. I looked at her and asked,"do you care" and she said no. I pulled the gown back exposing my parts and my stiches. After checking me, she left. It didn't excite me or her. It's just a job.
They are too professional for that!.
no. i think they look at nude men (and women) because they have to. it is in their job requirements..
it's a professional environment and when you see so much it all starts to look the same. I can understand the focus on the reaction/embarrasment as that is a little unusual and underlines that people are humans and at times can be frail. <br />
There is something a little pshycotic if you can do all that care giving and somehow get off on something so small. Stress and responsibility tends to replace these little 'peep shows'.
I had a very interesting exchange here with a hospital nurse, who was interested to know certain things about my experiences as a patient. In her experience, she and her nursing colleagues really aren't interested in seeing nude men, but they do find one thing amusing. Apparently it is a bit funny when a man is very embarrassed for being small and can't control his embarrassment. Nurses are professionals, and while there may be some chat at the hospital, it doesn't leave the hospital. <br />
Also in this one hospital nurse's experience, women doctors never engage in such chat and would not be happy to have such a thing discussed in their presence. Medical professionals are human and have human interests, but work and play are pretty separate. I have three old friends who are male doctors, and the never discuss anything about the human body related to their work in anything other than a professional way. Makes sense to me.
"Apparently it is a bit funny when a man is very embarrassed for being small and can't control his embarrassment."
So, in other words, they get malicious pleasure out of humiliating men. Sounds pretty misandrist to me.
Funny for her, not for me. I'm the small guy who's embarrassed. If a person finds a high-pitched voice, a certain shape of ear, or an inability to play the violin funny, they just do. No crime in that.
No. its a job, not an adventure.
Shortly after being transferred from ICU to regular room, a female nurse handed me (male) a towel. I removed my gown and got into the shower. While trying to turn on the water she entered without knocking. She looked at me and left without asking me if I needed assistance. After the near-death experience from pneumonia I was still adrift from reality. After several years of psychotherapy dealing with several issues (including boundaries) I have been viewing this incident as an abuse. Later (age 40) I had a shocking experience with a female doctor for annual physical exam. Without saying anything she held my genitals while I stood in shock. Afterwards I learned about checking for testicular cancer.
Well, folks; I'm an RN and male. And, yes, the women nurses whether married or not ENJOY looking at certain men. In addition, they talk about it vociferously. One time a nurse caught a patient ************ in his bathroom. Her "solution" was to run in to his room every time his rhythm showed artifact and whip open the bathroom room door to embarrass him to stop. They even had Playgirl magazines on the unit. If I ever dared to have a Playboy present I'd loose my job. If I ever hovered around an attractive woman's bed I'd be fired. However, in all my years of practice the vast majority of patients were women, all ages, religions, nationalities, cultures and I never had a chaperon or needed one. Maybe it's how I introduced myself and my professional behavior from the start. As for female nurse, NPs or Drs, I never had an un-thorough exam or treatment and never got aroused. At one time a female medical student examined my penis and with all the manipulation it started to get hard but not completely. It didn't seem to bother her; she never said anything and neither did I. Perhaps because I've been on both ends of the equation I don't see a problem regardless of gender. I even had a Muslim female doctor treat a groin problem and I'm Jewish.
During one exam for a job I was standing near the table getting ready to dress. The room was cool but I wound up having a full erection. The female doctor came back in (only curtain) to listen to my lungs and heart again and there I stood stark naked with the little guy at attention throughout the entire exam. Neither of us said anything but when I was leaving she told me I could come back if anything came up. Not sure if that had a double meaning. Anyway, males talk about females and females talk about males and when they do, they're unprofessional.
