I walked into a patient's room today, and with the curtain wide open, no blanket over him, no clothing over him-- he was cleaning his penis.
His roommate was watching, riveted.
This is why you don't want to be in a hospital. Ever.
I asked him if he wanted a minute to cover himself up before we talked.
He said no, not necessary.
I asked him if he could please cover himself up.
He said he was just cleaning himself.
I said that's fine, but I wanted his full attention while we talked.
He didn't look up.
I got my resident to deal with him instead. :)
