Medical Patient Modesty - a non-profit organization to improve patient modesty in medical settings


Tips For Medical Students/Residents

Do not take it personal if patients decide that they don't want you to be present for their intimate examinations/procedures. You should do whatever you can to protect patients' modesty and dignity. Many patients value modesty. Listen to patients' concerns about modesty carefully and work hard to meet their wishes. Many people don't feel comfortable having certain parts of their body exposed to the opposite sex except for spouse. They are not crazy. Many people would not be comfortable using public restrooms with people of the opposite sex.

Don't ask patients to take their clothes off if it is unnecessary. For example, there's no reason for a female patient to take her shirt off for you to listen to her heart.

Be considerate of patients' wishes regarding patient modesty. Many women do not wish to have male medical students or residents present for birth of their baby and intimate procedures and surgeries. Please respect their wishes.The number one priority should be the patient and the number two priority should be the patient's family. Keep in mind that their wishes for modesty are very important.

When you help with intimate procedures, be sure that you do whatever you can to protect patients' modesty as much as possible.

Never do pelvic and genital exams on patients under anesthesia without their consent under any circumstances. This is unethical! Think about how you would feel if one was done on you under anesthesia without your knowledge and consent.

We encourage you to strive to work on becoming a wonderful doctor sensitive to patient modesty. Patients who are modest often seek doctors who are sensitive to their needs and will recommend you to their friends and family members.
