Welcome to Medical Patient Modesty
To help educate patients and their
families about how to have maximum bodily privacy for procedures;
how to stand up for their rights requesting a same-sex medical
team for intimate procedures; and how to prevent sexual abuse
by medical professionals. We also work to educate medical professionals
on how to be more sensitive to patient modesty.
People have been indoctrinated to trust the medical industry
without question which can give the medical community the power
to make decisions for their patients that they should not be.
Many patients value their modesty and do not want certain parts
of their body to be exposed to the opposite sex ~ EVEN
IN THE MEDICAL SETTING ~ but when voiced their concerns
are often downplayed and ridiculed. We would like to see medical
professionals be more sensitive to patients' needs for modesty.
Keep this Statement in Mind
Because something is done in the name of health doesn't make
it blindly acceptable.
Medical Patient Modesty (MPM) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
that promotes stronger patient modesty in medical settings and
educates people about how they can stand up for their wishes
regarding modesty in medical settings. As a fledgling non-profit
organization we need financial support and volunteers to educate
others and advocate for those patients that have been handled
inappropriately. If you wish to donate
or invest in MPM as a volunteer please
Take a moment to share feedback about issues
you think we should address on Medical
Patient Modesty's blog and delve into this website for these
and many other issues on patient modesty:
*Does a patient's underwear
have to be removed during surgery? There are so
many cases where patients have no idea that they will have their
underwear taken off during surgeries. There have been some cases
where patients woke up surprised to see unnecessary
urinary catheters that were inserted without their consent.
One man had to take his underwear off for knee surgery which
was unnecessary. Check out some cases
where modesty was violated. There are cases where medical
students do pelvic exams on unconscious women before gynecological
surgery. Many of those women are never asked for consent at
all. See more information about non-consensual
*Are all intimate procedures necessary? For
example, pap smears are often not necessary for virgin women
unless they have smoked before. Look at information on pap
smears for virgin women. It is often unnecessary for a woman
to take her shirt off for a doctor to listen to her heart.
