Patient Modesty: Volume 47
We continue here the discussion regarding how the concerns about healthcare provider gender selection by patients and ways for the patient to be more comfortable with those who attend them can be brought to the attention of all those who provide service and maintain the status quo in the healthcare system. ..Maurice.
ADDENDUM (1-16-2012) On this date, PT, a long-time writer to this thread on Patient Modesty, wrote the following comment which includes a potentially valuable suggestion for a method for those who want to change the current medical system regarding patient modesty and caregiver gender selection. This is what he wrote:
" Rosa parks was a single woman who started
a movement with a single act of resistance,Malcolm X
took another path and my style is more like Rosa parks
My style is more like Genghis Khan until I
realized that the pen is mightier than the sword. My idea
to solve this issue is a 40 step process, meaning I have
put together 40 different avenues of approach over a
period of about 10 months.
Here is the first avenue, visit www.change.org
to start a petition. Now I suggest you start perhaps at a
hospital or clinic that you in the past had concerns with.
Others around the world will join the petition
and to be effective use multiple facilities in each city. Keep
in mind this is a medium to bring our concerns forward. The
first of many mediums we will use as I suggested in volume
46 of Dr. B's blog.
