A ‘cocky’ doctor shot obscene pictures of a woman on his cellphone. It is very important for male doctors to have a female nurse as attendant when examining female patients. It is a breach of Confidentiality.
“??Similarly, it is being debated that male patients should have male nurses in attendance while examination by a female doctor”.
Bottomline: A nurse or aide has to be present during a physical examination after getting the appropriate consent (in writing for more invasive examinations).
But, I can’t still figure out which bones this doctor was examining.

KOLKATA: An orthopaedic doctor, Asok Ray, was detained by Jadavpur police late on Friday for allegedly clicking obscene photos of a woman patient on his cellphone.
