UK Nurses Find No Harm In Seducing Their Patients
Gone are those days when having relationship with patients by their nurses were considered as absolutely frowning and unthinkable.

UK nurses are all set to break this age-old taboo'Nursing Times' revealed a shocking study result that thousands of nurses did not mind rooting their patients. Almost one in ten nurses did not find it wrong in having such affairs whereas one is six told that they knew of a colleague who had a sexual relationship with a patient they were looking after.

These new findings give added weight to the controversial remarks by Conservative peer Lord Mancroft that nurses are 'promiscuous' and 'unprofessional'.

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) says the survey findings, of 3,600 nurses, are 'very concerning'.

I think there is no harm if a nurse has sexual relationship with a patient after they are discharged. Many nurses have gone on to marry the patient afterwards. It is usually the patients who ask the nurse out for a date. Some nurses are so caring that the patients are naturally attracted to them. Nurses are after all human too!! This is nothing new. I am an overseas doctor who has worked in the UK for over a decade and witnessed such affairs many times in the past. As long as the nurses don't start giving blow jobs to the patients when the patients are in the ward that is fine and this does not happen. Don't secretaries marry their bosses and don't air hostess marry passengers and the pilots. So why blame the poor British nurses...
