Does this ever happen to you? You are just creeped out by a patient or their family? I'm not even talking about the people who would most likely creep you out: criminals, mental health patients.
I am talking about patients and their families that are just creepy. When you are in their room it feels like something is just off in the family, something you probably don't want to know about. They make your skin crawl. You avoid them. You just want them to go.
I am always amazed at our ability to keep a straight face in a lot of situations and not reveal what we are feeling. We just go along with stuff, saying...uh ...yeah ...OK...when we are really having a whole other conversation in our heads.
