I had a client who wanted to delay the bath and do it when they got home, after their hospital stay. The nurse was very insistent that it get done. The nurse ran through the usual "well, if your baby is not bathed, then we won't be able to touch him without gloves (yeah, that's a good thing!) and we will have to put the "infection control' sign on your door, (yeah, another good thing!, keeps the riff-raff out!) but when neither of those two comments worked on my client she said....
"Do you know where your baby just came out of? The same place that dirty tampons come from!!"
I almost died, right there in the room. My clients' jaw dropped and she looked at me, and I just rolled my eyes and mouthed "ignore her" and we moved on.
Seriously, this is so sick, sad and inappropriate on so many levels, that I can't even begin to unravel this!
