No I don't have two other threads on this story. I started it here in Health by mistake thinking I was in the Politics and Other Controversies area. Not knowing how to move it or even if that was possible, I started it a 2nd time over there. If there is a 3rd thread someone else started it.

If I have an obsession it is for all medical professionals to act like professionals. Most are, but on occasion some are not such as those this thread was started about. I have personally experienced unprofessional behavior on the part of female nurses in this context, but far more frequently than that the female nurses that I have dealt with have been very professional. I will say that the medical world needs to do a better job of weeding out the bad apples. It is astounding that those nurses in Denver were not fired.

How about you? Why do you object to this topic being discussed? Why didn't you just ignore the thread? Do you think what those nurses did was OK? Do you not think all patients need to be treated in a respectful and dignified manner, even when they are not aware? Hospitals are not a place for medical staff to pursue their prurient interests.

East peasy, just put in a note asking the moderator to move the thread or delete a redundant one.

Thanks. I'll remember that next time, though actually I'll be more careful knowing where I am when I start it.

You seem much more outraged at women viewing men than the other way around.

I am confused as to why you think this needs attention? It was discussed and in the papers. What do you want a cable news station to cover the entire event and have blanket coverage?

I feel the same no matter the gender combo. The reality is that most nurses are women but there certainly are creeps amongst the male staff ranks too. Patients do not go to hospitals to be part of a peep show. Professionals should treat patients with respect and dignity. Why is this such a hard concept for some here to accept?

You are free to ignore the thread if you prefer. I see many threads that in my opinion don't seem worthy of much discussion and I just ignore them.

Apparently some people don't care how they are treated when they are patients, and that's fine if it works for them. There also seem to be healthcare workers who object to patients expecting to be treated in a respectful and dignified manner. That's not OK.

As long as it doen't interfere with the quality of care, I think it's a plus. When a couple of the nurses engaged in some bawdy talk with me it made my day.
Same here for my prostate surgery . I guess maybe I am a nudist as I don't care as long as they are competent. Having the catherter removed was certainly no sexual pleasure. I had shaved myself before the surgery as I didn't really want them doing it.
