Patient Modesty: Volume 75

HOW ABOUT PATIENTS SETTING A LIMIT?  Analogous to this posted sign by merchants, it is interesting to read (Volume 74) discussion about  possible, potential patient reactions or responses to the behavior of the medical system itself with regard to issues of patient dignity and modesty.

Perhaps, either through regulatory agencies or simply by individual patient actions, the patients’ requests will be met.  If you were designing a  simple sign to be displayed by every patient to “set the limits”, how would you design the text or graphics?   ..Maurice.
