Sexual Misconduct By Doctors
 


This web site is a service of Medical Patient Modesty. The primary purpose of Medical Patient Modesty is to help to promote better patient modesty in medical settings and help medical professionals to be more sensitive to the importance of patient modesty in medical settings and help patients and their spouses who wish have same gender care for certain procedures and/or surgeries get their wishes. Some people who have concerns about patient modesty have also been sexually abused by at least one medical professional and they desire to find more resources on sexual misconduct by doctors. Because of the feedback that we received from people that we should also address sexual misconduct by doctors, Medical Patient Modesty decided to develop a web site about sexual misconduct by doctors. There are also some people who are interested in getting tips on how they might be able to prevent sexual misconduct by physicians from happening. Check out important information you should know.

The purpose of this informational web site is to help victims to know what they should do if they have been sexually abused and how they can report sexual misconduct. It is very time consuming to do research on the Internet about what you should do when you have been sexually abused by a doctor. There is a web page with links to complaint forms on different state medical boards' web sites.

Another goal of this educational web site is to give people some tips on how they can prevent sexual misconduct. It is our hope that parents can use the tips for parents to prevent their children from being sexually abused by doctors. Because a former pediatrician in Delaware has been accused of sexually abusing over 100 patients according to the news, we need to work to prevent children from being sexually abused by doctors in the future. The horrible case in Delaware has proven that we cannot always trust pediatricians to not hurt children. Parents tend to trust doctors too much and they need to take precautions to protect their children. Most pediatricians are good doctors who truly care about children and would never sexually abuse children. A good pediatrician would allow a parent to stay in the examining room with the child and him.

Many doctors who have been disciplined for sexual misconduct continue to practice medicine. Check out this article by WHAS11 in Louisville, KY about how some doctors have kept their licenses to practice medicine despite the fact they have been disciplined for sexual misconduct. One 14 year old girl went to a doctor for sore throat and he did a pap smear on her. There was no need for him to do a pap smear on her. The state medical board doesn't go far enough to protect patients sometimes. Check out an article by Chicago Tribune about how doctor sex misconduct cases are monitored in secrecy. This is not right. The public deserves to know about sexual misconduct cases by doctors to protect themselves.
