I just don’t understand management today.
Would it be too much to ask and expect them to take in cognizance of the respect advice and wishes of those people their decisions directly affect?
And what about the poor male patients who have testicular problems and other sensitive problems there is absolutly no word said of them for having female nurses look after them all the time and isn’t the majority of gynaecologists male up there?? All of them except for farrah, dr Sally and dr nandini so think this whole backlash on male nurses is stupid…. They are sensitive and great nurses so I’d gladly have a male look after me
I fail to see why male nursing staff treating women who have miscarried is a betrayal. The fact they are a nurse is all that should matter. Also having your name above your bed does not in any way disclose why you are in the hospital. They are picking up on trivialities which is not helping their cause.
Ehm, if u are not in a private ward then u are on a public ward anyway. What difference does a name being up on a board make if it help’s nursing staff identify where patients are. I sympathise with anyone who is a gynae patient but other patients would love annonimity and privacy too for various reason’s. This is silly nitpicking and taking away from the fact that everyone is entitled to the best healthcare possible whilst in hospital. If one group starts wanting special treatment whee will it end?
I am living in South Africa, and have been supporting Linda Cullen’s cause from here,as in our government hospitals there is no privacy, it is difficult for a female who has had a miscarriage or has other problems to express her concerns to a male nurse and some even to a male doctor. It is so sad to see a 1st world state doing something like this, we here have gone from a 1st world country to a 3rd world country and if you dont have a medical aid here, it would be better to stay at home and die, don’t let this happen to your country.
lynette nearly all the gynecologist up there are male… if a woman had gynae problems they would express their problems to anyone who knows how to fix them.
Are these women not in relationships with men. Surely male or female support provided in a caring compassionate way should be equal. If men discriminated against women the way women are discriminating against men there would be a massive outcry. Stick to the issues and stop making this about petty issues. Men or expectant fathers might love to be able to confide in a male nurse.
im sorryput i agree bring bck gynae ward at letterkenny general as a mother of four i feel women in gynae with sensitive and vulnerable situations such as miscarrages and womens problems should notbe made to be put on general wards would you be so quiet if they put your child on a general ward and not on childrens ward i dont think so and we are not looking for special treatment just be a bit more understanding and a bit more respect to women to be put on a ward where ppl are all in the same situation its not alot to ask every other hospital has a gynae ward why cant we ????
It saddens me that everyone is missing the point here no one is saying that male doctors an male nurses are not good at what the do , of course the are..but as a woman that would be going tru the trauma of misscarrying her baby , or a cancer patient that may have just lost her breast,an wouldnt even be able to let her husband look at her let alone another male even tho this would be a nurse..Ben everyone has there own opinion but how would you feel if you had a 13yr old daughter that had to go to hospital with ovarian cyst’s maybe due to her starting her periods at an early age would you feel comfortable with a male changing her an how would you think your daughter would feel about a male looking at her private parts??? And Jane to answer your quesion about names on boards Gynae, It was there policy that the never used “Naming Boards” as some of the patients issues were very sensitive…Its not all as Black & White as yous may think….
