    And what if one of your attendings decided to grab your balls in the locker room? Would you still have this attitude?
    EDIT: ok what the hell is up with a bump of a 2year old thread?

    So what do you do if a patient says something inappropriate sexually or racially or actually tries to touch you? Should you just leave right then and there and get the resident/staff?

    If they say something inappropriate you tell them that is inappropriate or you let it pass. If they lay hands on you, you tell your team and/or get security depending on the nature of what it was. In my mind a pat on the ass gets a stern warning. Anything further gets higher ups involved. Laying hands on you is assault.
