Patient Modesty: Volume 40
So now we move on to Volume 40. I started the thread on patient modesty concerns back in August of 2005--approaching 6 years ago. Much has been written to this thread in the intervening years but I think it is interesting to go back and read the initial Volume of the thread named "Naked"and then compare with the more recent Volumes. I think what you will find is that there has been a shift in conversation about solution to the patient modesty concerns from one of frustration and futility to currently more about some success by patients "speaking up" to their healthcare providers to express their need and even to have their requests satisfied. I look forward toward more optimism than despair or is this just wishful thinking? ..Maurice.
NOTICE: AS OF TODAY JUNE 3, 2011 "PATIENT MODESTY: VOLUME 40" WILL BE CLOSED FOR FURTHER COMMENTS. YOU CAN CONTINUE POSTING COMMENTS ON VOLUME 41.
