77. Thank you for sharing your experiences.
While i find the situation in the OP personally distasteful i can think of other less upsetting reasons to "prefer" one caregiver over another. The first thing that came to my mind is a person that i know who asks for only female caregivers. She has abuse in her past.

Sticky situations can ensue when you begin dealing with patient rights because not all patients are the same. It would seem that patient rights, like any rights, have the potential to be warped by some. That does not make the wisdom or validity of the right, as used by the majority, less legitimate.
