Yes, I do want to continue this thread despite its many year length. Why? Because the issues which have been presented here by my visitors over the years have not been resolved or even significantly beginning to be resolved and I do think that the issues presented regarding patient physical modesty and medical caregiver gender selection, even if only an issue for a small population of patients is still meritorious and need mitigation and resolution. Every patient, even from a small population, should be treated humanely and given all the support they need during their interaction with the medical system. If we, as professionals speak about "medical care" to ourselves, to patients and others, I do think that we should "care". ..Maurice.
