The Bare-Non® Modesty Apron protects patient modesty and dignity as well as protecting practitioners and organisations from potential claims arising from compromised patient modesty. Such claims could result in financial loss and reputational damage, as well as increasing personal stress to all concerned.
Ignoring the need to preserve the modesty and dignity of patients is a risk that can be easily and cost-effectively avoided by providing the Bare-Non® Modesty Apron.
GENERAL MEDICAL COUNCIL (“GMC”)
The General Medical Council’s “Guide to Good Medical Practice” dictates that medical practitioners must provide a good standard of practice and care. If assessing, diagnosing or treating a patient the doctor must, where necessary, examine the patient.
It also states that doctors must treat patients as individuals and respect their dignity and privacy.
Serious or persistent failure to follow this guidance may put the registration of doctors at risk.
