Health Service Hand Jobs!


Oooooo Matron!


A certain Panda pointed me in the direction of the following story from Holland. I was most interested in the comments made by the boss of the health care company.

Can you imagine the uproar in this country?

Even worse, could you imagine the waiting times for an NHS hand job! You'd end up like this chap by the time your appointment arrived. The consulting room would look like a milk float had crashed.


A Dutch healthcare union has kicked off a campaign to brace nurses and other caretakers against sexual requests made by patients. Its motto: “I draw the line here”.

The campaign instigated by the union named Nu’91 comes as a reaction to a recent incident between a 42-year old man and his new 24-year-old home caretaker. A muscle disorder has left the man unable to move anything but his mouth and eyes. The man asked his new caretaker, a student, to relief him of his natural urges, saying that his other seven caretakers did the same for him. The young women saw two of her colleagues do so indeed. When she refused, her patient called her unfit for healthcare.



The union was most shocked by the reaction of a care dependents interest group, Per Saldo. When the incident became public last weekend, Aline Saers, the group’s managing director, expressed sympathy for the man. “They are free to ask,” she said. “You are free to refuse.”


Saers has since said she had not meant to condone the man’s request. “Sexual services are not part of a caretaker's tasks,” she explained.


A client can discuss his sexual needs with a caretaking agency, Saers said, so that it can call upon a specialised escort agency – legal in the Nehterlands - for instance. “Sexual help can be so soothing. Some municipalities arrange it,” Saers added.

O/T. A fat girl in our office was yukking on about witnessing an elderly and infirm client renting an adult DVD in a local shop, saying it was disgusting and pervy.
She was not reassured by mocking claims that the elderly and infirm had 'needs' too.

I often stop off in the Netherlands when I am wandering about looking for bamboo shoots.

I once had to spend a few days in hospital after a minor accident.

They had to forcibly discharge me.

The food was good too.

I got so tired of having to refuse nurses's solicitations the last time I was in hospital..

It reminds me of a story years ago in the local rag about a nursing home.

A few of the young lady carers were making a bit on the side charging the old guys for hand jobs and shags.
