A Dutch nurses’ union is making a statement that health care does not include sexual services as demanded by some patients.
The union, named NU’91, will name the campaign as “I Draw The Line Here”. They will be using an advertisement featuring a female nurse covering her face with her crossed hands.
It all started when a 24 year old nurse refused to give sexual gratification to a 42 year old disabled man who demanded it as part of her home health care services. The nurse filed her complaint last week.
The nurse reported that she saw other nurses having sexual activities with the man. When she refused, he asked that she be dismissed on the grounds of being not fit to provide care.
“This type of action is not part of the job responsibilities of carers and nurses,” the union said.
The union added that the case has already been reported to the police.
