This is why historically, nurses have been women.

Girls prefer female nurses and so do men.

It's just plain dangerous to have a male alone in a room with an incapacitated female.

Aesop's tale of the scorpion and the turtle exemplifies this.

It's just plain dangerous to have a male alone in a room with an incapacitated female.

What a silly premise. By your logic, it would also be plain dangerous to have a female alone in a room with an incapacitated female, as female nurses have been known to kill patients before.

The reality is that the overwhelming majority of nurses are nurses because they want(ed) to care for people, and do that job. And sometimes, you have people who have nefarious motives, and fall through the cracks. All we can do as humanity is work to create a system that catches these people before it happens, and adjust accordingly when it does happen.

@burningbsh Aesop's tale of the scorpion and the turtle exemplifies this.

I've read some religious fundamentalists claim that unmarried males and females can't be in the same room together because 'something' might happen that would upset the higher power they obey.

I guess some political fundamentalists, e.g. those pushing whichever form of totalitarianism led by whichever political messiah, must feel the same way.

But then with 7.7 billion on the planet, there are bound to be those who occupy the whack end of just about any spectrum.

BBush ... If what you claim is true, then why aren't all the other incapacitated patients also pregnant?
