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'.
