Okay, so there is this guy in my clinical group who smells. I don't mean he occasionally has a bad day and stepped in dog poo or anything. I mean this guy smells like stale cigarettes mixed with days-old B.O. He is nauseating. He walks by, and the smell wafts towards me, and I am tempted to run to the nearest trash can and puke. He also likes to put his arms over his head and stretch while making semi-erotic grunting noises while stretching. It's super gross.
How is he even allowed in clinical? We are in pediatrics right now, and we got the whole talk about "no perfumes, no strong scented shampoo, no extra flowery deodorant." So HOW IN THE EF is he allowed to walk around smelling like week old armpit? It's disgusting!
On a side note, this is the same guy who inspired this blog, and you should read all about his exploits here. But I digress.
With this in mind, do any of you have a tactful way that I can mention to a professor or staff nurse or SOMEONE that he is in serious need of hygiene? This is disgusting, and I can't believe nursing school puts up with this crap. If he can't even bathe himself, can he be trusted to be a decent nurse?
