Nurses buy sex aid for disabled

2nd October 2008

Nurses bought a sex aid for a severely disabled teenager, it emerged today.

Community nurses at Worcestershire Primary Care Trust's childrens team justified the move saying that there was no national sex health policy to follow, so they had to make up their own.

Lead nurse, Stephanie Courts told the Nursing Standard that the boy had grown increasingly frustrated at being unable to satisfy his sexual urges and so nurses addressed the problem after liasing with his parentys.

Ms Courts said the team dealt professionally with a potentially embarrassing and legally difficult situation, but guidelines needed to be established.
