Do you have any advice for this student nurse?
“My mentor has a problem with body odour. Normally, I wouldn’t mind but some of our patients have clearly noticed and one of them even mentioned it to me. It can’t be nice having someone do your personal care when they smell and it must be poor infection control.
“I can’t tell if the rest of the team know. They’ve not said anything but I think it’s fairly obvious.
“Is it my place to say something?”
