About Us

Our Mission


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 families who wish to have same gender care for certain procedures and/or surgeries get their wishes.

Our Goals


*Contact hospitals throughout the United States to educate them on the importance of patient modesty and encourage them to provide patient modesty training to their doctors, nurses, technicians, and other staff members.

*Increase, through hospital education, the number of male nurses available for intimate procedures (such as vasectomy and urinary catheterization) on male patients because many men are uncomfortable with female nurses doing these procedures on them.

*Contact urology and ob/gyn offices explaining the importance for patients to have the option of same gender medical professionals participating in intimate procedures or surgeries that expose their private parts. Sometimes, female ob/gyns don't even realize how important it is to some female patients and their husbands that no males be involved in their ob/gyn care. For example, a woman and her husband requested an all female ob/gyn operating room team for his wife's hysterectomy. To their horror, a male scrub technician ended up participating in the surgery.

*Increase, in rural areas, the number of female ob/gyns, as well as nurse midwives that can attend the births of their babies. Way too many hospitals cannot assure women and their husbands that they will have a female ob/gyn present for the birth of their baby. We would like to contact those hospitals to encourage them to hire more female ob/gyns.

*Decrease the number of unnecessary invasive procedures such as urinary catheterizations by educating the medical community and the public.

*Increase the awareness of alternative procedures to protect a person’s modesty such as the use of abdominal vs. transvaginal ultrasound to detect ovarian cysts through patient and hospital education.

*Decrease opportunities for sexual impropriety and abuse of patients by medical staff.

*Educate parents about how to protect their children especially teenagers from unnecessary intimate exams


Our Vision

*To help patients stand up for their rights to patient modesty and not be afraid to speak up when they feel like their modesty has been violated. Empower those that feel their modesty has been violated to write letters to the doctors and/or hospitals sharing the details of their experience in an effort to make their providers more sensitive in the future. The more patients that speak up, the better chance we have of changing the way patient modesty is approached in medical settings. Issues surrounding patients where abortion or euthanasia are concerned will not be addressed as MPM does not support these procedures.
