There's really nothing quite like:

Having your patient spray you with his pee on a Friday morning.
Actually it wasn't that bad. Poor Mr. A had to potty during his visit with me. He was a disabled man on a motorized scooter, and usually needed help to go. Because I was the only man in the clinic, he sheepishly asked if I could help him, instead of getting the nurse.
I agreed, before he cautioned me that he has a tendency to spray (Uh oh...).
Well, he did. All over my hands as I held the urinal (he couldn't get up close enough to the toilet). He pretty embarassed by it, though we both had a good laugh when I reassured him that urine is sterile.

It's awfully nice of you to help make him feel at ease despite getting your hands "wet"
Many would have felt uncomfortable with his request and probably summoned an assistant to help instead.

i takes a great man to ask for help,
a greater man to help.
