Patient Modesty: Volume 17
NOTICE: AS OF TODAY MAY 31 2009 "PATIENT MODESTY: VOLUME 17" WILL BE CLOSED FOR FURTHER COMMENTS. YOU CAN CONTINUE POSTING COMMENTS ON VOLUME 18.
Much has been written here over the past years about how both genders feel about the knowledge and behavior of physicians and the medical system regarding patient bodily modesty. Particularly written about is the patient's need for physical privacy during exams and procedures and the provision of emotional comfort through allowing and following the patient's request for gender selection of the healthcare provider. So NOW IS THE TIME TO SPREAD THE WORD!!
..So we will begin on that theme. How can we entice physicians, nurses and others in the medical profession to visit this blog, educate themselves about the concerns and provide their opinions on these topics? How can the word of patient concerns be spread to physicians and the medical system? The words have so far been defined by the visitors here and now they should be spread! ..Maurice.
