Single sex hospital wards – yey or ney
This seems to be in the news more and more lately, while being something I strongly oppose. Yes they have their benefits of preserving a person dignity however not only do they cost more and often leave patients with the same conditions on different wards making life difficult for junior doctors the question I always ask is “What about husband and wife trauma injuries.”
Before I meet the one this was something that I didn’t even think about however now he is the only one I think about. If heaven forbid we were both ever to be hospitalised I would want to be with him every step of the way and if that meant some male looking at my privates so be it hell they are only body parts. Also when discussing this with some friends who have had children their husbands/partners were not allowed to stay over nigh after they have given birth something that shocked and saddened me greatly, while leaving me questioning is this also due to male/female split. It’s also something that would make me consider a more risky home birth.
What’s your thoughts opinion on this?
