Seriously?!? Pelvic exams done without consent?!? So much for your “privates” being private.
Yep. According to this article in the Globe and Mail,
Medical students routinely practice doing internal pelvic examinations while surgery patients are unconscious, and without getting specific consent, at least in Canada.
I can’t even imagine how they could possibly think that this is okay?
I had my tubes tied and was unconscious and now I wonder if this could have happened to me. Please God, I hope not.
Please sign this open letter to doctors and the people in charge of doctors to stop this from ever happening again.
