[Resolved] Doctors — Dignity of female patients
In our country, female's sexual safety is a big issue. At least modesty charges are framed on person if he tries to touch her without her permission. While male doctors/male nurses are allowed to see and touch fully naked females. Female always goes to parlour or for any other service where female attendants are there. Then can't they be given choice for medical treatments.
Two month back, my wife underwent a surgery. She has to go with gown, which is usually very open. Even then that is also removed when they start operating her. Now can you imagine 6 males were present in the OT. Initially there were 6 males only, then after 25 minutes a lady surgeon came in OT, she went away in another 25 min. After another 20 min my wife came out.
After that when she was in private room, lady doctor come with junior male doctors and asks me to move out so that they both can examine her.
I have been facing trauma since operation. From that time I am not able to take complete sleep and also I am facing other health issues.
In this regard i have following queries:-
How valid are these rule? One side we take care of females in all places and on other side, they have to be naked in front of male doctors and OT attendants. Even when we all know we have give our consis proior to operation, as we don't have any other option available to us, then why patients concern is not taken care off.
Please let me know if there is any clause, which can help a husband to be with his wife while examination of wife and/or during surgery.
As u know patient is worried and do not have much conscious when she goes in OT to ask for female nurse if she is not there. So is there any law which can help relatives to confirm who all are in OT?
Can patient insist to have female attendants in OT?
What can be done if hospital and doctor do not help us in the resolving such issues?
What if i want my wife to be treated by female doctors/attendant?
In case female doctors and attendant are not available, can husband be allowed to be there in that room?
When female doctor is examining female, why are junior male doctor are allowed there and husband is asked to move out?
I will be highly oblige if you can answer my questions
Please and please help me...
