Encouraging the perfectly capable patient to get out of bed and defecate in the BSC instead of in the bed, all over herself. Once convinced to get out of bed, she states she cannot wipe her own bottom.

Me: “who wipes your bottom for you at home?”
Pt: “well, I do.”
Me: “is there a reason why you can’t do it here?”
Pt: “Oh I see…so you just don’t want to work.”
Me: “I love my job. A very important part of my job is promoting your independence so you can manage at home safely.”

….boom!
