This is a tough one. A lot probably depends on the physical and mental condition of the patient, but this is one of those areas that I’ve seen swept under the rug rather than be addressed. I’ve worked in LTC with a few perverted residents too.
I did report one incident to management and they shifted around the staff to keep the resident away from the young CNA’s. When he would get fresh with me I would sternly tell him to stop being disrespectful, and since I was married, and so was he, I asked him how he would like it if a man talked to HIS wife like that. He didn’t care for that thought so much.
