Accomodating female definition
It is not rare to find prostate screening offered by a clinical team consisting of all female nurses.One can’t even imagine the converse, an all male mammography laboratory.Nearly all physicians were men and nurses were women. Male physicians felt entitled to see all comers and present day women physicians feel the same.
Some avoid doing them all together for multiple reasons.
I have never seen a hospital patient bill of rights which mentioned choice of gender.
Institutions are in a partial bind when it comes to hiring as gender is a protected federal class and equal employment laws need to be followed.
Patients’ gender preferences for medical care are a factor that we all know exists yet most physicians prefer to ignore it in daily practice hoping that modern medicine is gender neutral.
Forty plus years ago when I started in medicine this wasn’t a consideration.
