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


Welcome to Medical Patient Modesty

Our Mission

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 exams.

*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.
