* In the second episode of ''Anime/AfroSamurai'' the titular character is nursed back to health by a girl who finds him after he's injured at the end of the first episode, the entire episode has [[GreekChorus Ninja Ninja]] telling him to [[JiveTurkey hit that]] [[spoiler:he does]]. Subverted in that [[spoiler:it turns out that she's [[VictoriousChildhoodFriend his childhood friend]], is working for the bad guys ([[WhatTheHellHero not that you can blame her]])... [[SexFaceTurn at first]] and gets [[RedemptionEqualsDeath killed by them at the end]]]]. At least he gets a PocketProtector out of the ordeal.

** Alex slowly falls for Jane Doe/Eva as she recovers in the hospital with no face, no memory, and a baby. [[spoiler:He eventually does the noble thing and lets her go back to her husband. A few months later, she comes back to the hospital and they have sex.]]

See also TheWoobie and BandageBabe, which is what the patient may be to the audience and to the nurse. Also compare WeaknessTurnsHerOn. If the character giving the first aid is not actually good at it, it's NurseWithGoodIntentions. Possibly contrast StockholmSyndrome and LimaSyndrome.

LimaSyndrome (though it might overlap if the captor tends to the captive's wounds).

Added DiffLines:

* Happens in TabletopGeme/Warhammer40000 FanFic titled [[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9334839/4/The-Lure-of-Chaos The Lure of Chaos]]. Especially notable, since it happens between an [[ChurchPolice Inquisitor]] and [[TheHeretic a chaos worshipper]]

Added DiffLines:

* Invoked in the Guerdo Town's "Voe and You" dating class in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' where one Gerudo woman named Risa says that if she had found an injured Voe (male Hylian) on the ground she'd bring him back home secretly and nurse him back to health... to which the instructor Ashai says is basically kidnapping (not to mention the Voe are banned from Gerudo town to make the Gerudo go out and explore Hyrule).

* In ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'', almost every time [[HotScoop Madison Paige]] meets Ethan Mars, she's either bandaging his wounds or trying to help him find his son [[spoiler:while planning to write a story about him.]] Her desire to help him eventually turns into love. Depending on player decisions [[spoiler:like whether or not Ethan will forgive her for trying to get a story out of his ordeal]], they can even end up married.

* In ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Blazing Blade]]'', Jaffar already had some degree of interest in Nino, but it started to turn into friendship (and love, if they get an A support) only when she nursed him back to health after he was seriously injured (and going against the law of the Black Fang, actually, since she should've given him a ShootTheDog treatment). It was made even stronger when [[spoiler:she begged him to spare Zephiel and he made a LastStand for her.]]

** Note that she repeats the pattern: She's a White Mage, Cecil's a [[KnightInShiningArmor Paladin]]. Their quest to defeat Golbez, and then Zemus, cements their love. They produce [[FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears Ceodore]], a [[WhiteMagic White]] MagicKnight.

* The podcast TheBugle, in its recurring "Hotties from History" segment, insists that the ''actual'' Florence Nightingale was the ultimate example. Her name is occasionally used as a byword for sexiness in general.
