dutch Amsterdam, Mar 15 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Dutch patients are demanding sexual services from the nurses, as they are of the opinion that it ought to be a part of their standard care. However the nurses are not amused and they have instead launched a nation wide campaign on Friday, against the demands. The nurses union are totally against the move by the patients, who say that taking care of their sex-life also ought to be a part of the nurse’s care regime.

The nurses union is titled NU’91 and they are calling this nation-wide campaign as ‘I Draw The Line Here’. They also have an advertisement in which a young woman is present, who has covered her face with her crossed hands. Apparently this nation wide campaign came into being, after the nurses union received a complaint from a 24-year-old caregiver, who was being harassed by a 42-year-old disabled man. The patient was of the opinion that the nurse also ought to provide him sexual services as part of her care regime at his home. This caregiver also saw that the other nurses of this particular 42-year-old man, used to provide him with sexual favors. However she stood her ground and protested, and was subsequently fired from her job. Then she lodged a complaint with the union. “This type of action is not part of the job responsibilities of carers and nurses,” NU’91 said.
