As a nurse, I often care for patients who are totally dependant and need help at mealtimes... if a patient needs help to put food into their mouth we feed them...
It has been suggested that the use of the word 'feed' is inappropriate and may cause offence.... after all we 'feed' animals!! (I kid you not!)
So... I know this forum has some clever buggers... what do you all think... we would hate to cause offence what could we say instead... so far my favourite is 'facilitate nutritional intake.
and can you think of any other apparently innocent words which are a terrible offence waiting to happen?
