Patient Modesty: Volume 36
And the patient modesty issue continues with concerns about which gender is more at risk for modesty abuse and which healthcare provider and provider gender is doing or not doing what.
One solution to the concerns continues now to appear and that is the importance of any patient with modesty concerns to SPEAK UP to the providers and to the system. I can't believe that any patient should find it necessary to avoid a necessary medical workup and treatment because of concerns that their modesty issues will not be attended by the provider. If it ever should come to that, and according to some writing here it has, there is something drastically wrong with the system or perhaps the initiative of the patient to make their wishes known. ..Maurice.
p.s.- I haven't put up a graphic to symbolize the current discussions here. If any of my visitors have found one which would be appropriate and publication allowed with recognition of primary source, I will put it up. I am running out of ideas for a graphic here despite my Google-ing as of Volume 36 !
