Awkward Moments With Patients

Having just performed a DRE on a patient in the ER, the patient reached for my now ungloved hand. I pulled away.

Patient: “I just want to hold you hand. You’re cute.”

A very brief awkward pause followed, which the patient decided to break by saying something even more biazzare.

Patient: “Actually what I want to do is sexually assault you.”

Can we say borderline or something? Perhaps blessedly I haven’t had my psych rotation yet.
