If she turns down a chaperone?
Q I am a male consultant who recently met a new patient for the first time. During the consultation, she informed me that she recently discovered a lump in her breast which she would like examined.
I offered a nurse chaperone but she declined, saying she was very embarrassed about baring her breast and consequently, would prefer just to have the doctor there.
However, I felt extremely uneasy about undertaking this examination without a chaperone present.
