The Blogs of Drs. Sherman and Bernstein indicate males are becoming increasingly fed up with the attitudes and actions of female nurses and are avoiding healthcare for that reason. The nurses do not care but the males and their families are seeking solution via the two blogs mentionned with no response from the nursing industry. The nurses forums will not address the concerns so John Q has to take action and insist on more respectful care and more male nurses by eliminating the forces which permit inappropriate actions including driving male nurses away. I have not been subject to the many complaints included in the blogs but would appreciate hearing if the issue is as serious as reported. The blogs relate to bio-ethical discussions and the nursing industry simply ignores these Drs.' findings..

This is in fact a huge deal and discussions on several nurses and Doctors blogs are very active on the topic. A Lot of PT's are not aware of HIPPA and it's guidelines and that goes for a lot of the medical staff as well. It is in fact a big huge problem also, men are simply not going to the Doctor or the Hospital , and when they do its almost too late.

Bob: I support CaDad in this part of his crusade for appropriate care re modesty in health care and I expect was his original program. If you care- please check out the blogs by Drs. Sherman and Bernstein . We only lose CaDad when he slides into inaccurate assumptions and name calling etc.

Anyone ever watch the "situation critical" show and notice how male patients are left totally nude on the table but females are covered immediately. These items are not up for discussion on the nurse blogs as they seem to want to avoid the dble std. Some day a "florence nightengale" type will join the forums and explain if these claims are a misconception or actually happen- if pro nurse blogs refuse to address the item we can assume there is a problem- so I would like to hear from 'UNCHAINED NURSES" to only better understand the situation......

Sam: no question- hey- I am not questioning the requirement for nudity but it seems odd when a women is "on the table" for a shoulder injury she is kept covered but a male is totally stripped and the stories the nurses tell of covering the patient to respect his modesty sure is a fable. I do not understand it but you and I have touched on the dble std B4 ! The blogs on bioethics of modesty in health care give many examples of the female nurses attitudes of male/female exposure..

To Coyote and other dear readers when i was in the Royal Oldham hospital following a RTA i think patients modesty in this country has gone just a little bit to far.Both my lower arms and wrists were in plaster as both were broken in four places when the nurse came around to wash you she only washed your face.Any other part of your body you had to wash your self.Could you imagin what it is like trying to wash your breasts stomach and between your legs with both arms in plaster plus how painful this is.I only done that once and i was in hospital for i think 16-17 days.I even had to take my own knickers off for them to be washed now that was damned difficult and painful i only done that once as well.All i can say is this it was a good job that i did not come on when i was in there now that would have been a nightmare.

On this topic I feel we heard from the "real" Ca Dad and not the name calling fellow who posted on the other forums. It may be the same fellow but seems to me his temperament is to be logical on this topic whereas in the others he got caught up in the smear campaign and actually was guilty of belittling his cause- so good to see him here as the CaDad I originally encountered on the education forum. I can imagine the reasons the nurses' profession does not get involved with these discussions to try and alleviate any unjust accusations is they cannot or will not accept their entitlement to disregard male modesty is really non existent and they are too pleased with their "power to inappropriately humiliate male pts." to want to relinquish it. They want male nurses for "lifting" but let it end there (so it seems). Meanwhile; males avoid health care in too large a number and tragic results occur simply because of non caring female nurses. I am not saying they are aware of the problem but I am also not saying they are not aware of the problem !

It must be concluded nurses are only doing their jobs and any males avoiding health care are simply being "silly". OK...

The Bio ethics blog is extremely interesting, it was eventually taken down because it caused quite a stir lol,The majority of the discussions on allnurses have been stopped, simply because the Administration does not want to discuss it anymore and it a fairly vocal discussion. There are a number of female nurses who in fact recognize the issue and are supportive of it. What is interesting they observe these instances of inappropriateness and do or say nothing because the culture is not up to self policing. It is difficult to see, I cannot account for it. In some situations that I have observed, they simply are not aware of the discomfort of the PT, male or female, usually male though. They are so conditioned or battle hardened it escapes their notice-amazing isn't it-but you can see some of the problems too. Their burned out, zombies actually. They simply have lost touch with the patient/caregiver relationship.

CaDad : So are you saying the inappropriate actions re patient modesty is because they are overworked?? Does it take more effort to do things appropriately than not ? I have a niece who is an RN now and came from LPN ranks. She has/does often complain about being "burnt out". I love her and offer her my sympathy but in reality her work week is 5 eight hour shifts. I cannot recall ever having a job requiring less than 48 hours and most far exceeded that. I feel she is simply convinced she is "burnt" because that is the norm attitude she shares with her fellow nurses and they come to feel it must be so. The old timers said it does not take any more time and effort to do things right so excuses do not wash. Read Don MD again !!

All the patient wants is respect and to get better i have read articles in news papers about men not going to hospital because the doctor that deals with mens health issues is a woman.This i can understand because i would not like to go to the well women clinic for a smear test only to find out it is a male that is going to do the test.But males do encounter double standards in hospitals that is true enough.Some attitudes used against men in some situations are these Mr Bloggs for crying out loud your a married man.Well maybe that is why Mr Bloggs does not want another woman to see him in a certain situation.Certain attitudes against men will have to change but things must be bad when on both sides of the Atlantic men are not seeking much needed medicle treatment.

I am postulating on the topic, desperately trying to come up with some reasonable explanation on the behavior. The laws are certainly in place. It's the culture, the administration, which chooses to ignore the complaint.No effort is given or taken to address the issue. Men are simply ignored or berated if they ask for same gender care of privacy. And I might add, their holier then thou attitude is such a load of ****, they do all the things that are attributed to men and more. This maternal instinct simply is a charade when it comes to males, young and old.
