Patient Modesty: Volume 37
..and the story continues. For those who haven't been following this thread over the years, the story is one of patient bodily modesty and the need by some for gender selection of their healthcare providers. This need is apparently often not satisfied by physicians or other parts of the medical system, particularly in the case of male patients who desire a male provider. There are other aspects of the patient modesty issue that have been discussed including the inability of the patient to be assured that his or her modesty concerns will be attended to during operations or other procedures where modesty sensitive parts of the patient's body could be exposed to unknown persons of a gender unacceptable to the patient. If you haven't been here before and have an entirely different view, please be welcome to express that view here. As usual, keep the comments constructive and civil but write. ..Maurice.
