Question- what should be the priority of witness while examining female patient in a clinic?
Answer – The following priority is suggested.
1. Female relative or female attendant of patient who has come with her
2. Her husband if she has come with him and no female relative or attendant is there.
3. Your female staff nurse or even computer operator if patient has come alone.
4. If you do not have any female employee, ask any other female patient to come inside examination room.
Avoid examination of female patient alone when you are examining breast, back or private parts.
