Patient Modesty: Volume 13
Can't we all get along? The graphic adapted by me using ArtRage from an image on mdwilliams/myspace, sets the current issue being discussed on these volumes. Can't patients look at their healthcare providers as responsible and beneficent people whose profession is to help patients of all genders? Well, some visitors to this blog find that exposure or manipulation of certain "private" bodily parts demands the presence of providers of a gender requested by the patient. They find that doctors are unaware of this issue or simply ignore their requests for a specific gender. Though I, personally, am more interested in the skills and personality of my doctor, nurse or tech rather than the gender in all aspects of examination or procedure, I do appreciate the arguments that have been presented here. Come join us in the conversations. ..Maurice.
