  • Unusual hospital visit

    I've just come back from having day surgery at the hospital. When I first checked in I was taken to one of the day surgery rooms and the nurse told me to remove my clothes and put on the gown that she handed me. It was obvious she was waiting for me to give her my clothes so she could bag them with my name until the surgery was over. As I undressed another nurse came in and wanted to take all of the chart information that they do when you are checking in. As I handed over my clothes, the check in nurse continued to ask me questions. The gown I was given had a strap missing in the back, so the other nurse took it away from me and said she would get me another one. While she was gone, a third nurse came in and wanted to start an IV. It took the nurse who left to get another gown a while to get back. During this time I was lying nude on the bed getting an IV put in and still giving out information to the other nurse. When the nurse with the new gown returned she waited until the IV was secure to ask me to put the gown on. At one time I had three nurses in the room with me standing and lying there buck naked! The whole process took about 20 minutes. I don't mind being nude anywhere, but this was a different experince, and it was almost as if they all enjoyed seeing me and keeping me that way!

      Sounds like a nice compliment to me. Hope all went well for your surgery and you have a quick recovery!

          It sounds like a typical OR procedure, in that the naked body is no more than another body being prepared for another routine surgery. They, the OR staff, sees nude bodies all the time, so the sight of just another one is no big deal to them.

          Granted, it is strange for them to do all the piercings while you remained nude, but then again, they were just in the routine of prepping you for surgery. I hope everything turned out okay.

            Freedom Guy,

            I hope everything went well and you are recovering. Which hospital was it? I may ask to go there if I ever need to have surgery.

            Cheers.

              My experience is that hospitals and medical persons do everything to conserve your modesty. I am surprised they had you naked for that amount of time.

                Thanks, everyone for your reply. The surgery did go fine and I should be back at work in just a few days. I must admit I kind of enjoyed the whole "extra" attention! Knowing that in most cases they seek to perserve your modesty, even though they see naked bodies every day, is what made this an unusual visit for me. It was nothing to them (obviously), but I'm glad I experienced it!

                    These nurses were highly unprofessional as it was certainly not necessary to have you nude while they did their particular work. They went against hospital rules to preserve the patient's modesty and should be diciplined or fires for ignoring hospital rules.

                      I think we are in the same boat! Glad the surgery went OK.

                        Whoa! Hold on just a minute there David77. By Freedom Guy's description, there was nothing I read as being unprofessional. Indeed, the nurses nonchalant, laissez-faire attitude toward nudity is just the way it should be. Indeed, your statement above suggests to me that you think there is something quite wrong with being nude or being allowed to be nude.

                          David is right that the nurses weren't following their rules of professional conduct, though it wouldn't have bothered me either. Such things do happen.

                          Earlier this year I went for an outpatient procedures that required me to remove my clothes from the waist down. The nurse was working with equipment in the room when I was taken in. She said, "Take your pants and underwear off and hang them on the hook behind the door. Then sit on the side of the bed. I have to get this done but I won't look."

                          I did as instructed, but was aware that she was working in a corner with mirrors on both walls that formed the corner. It was hardly possible for her not to look. But she obviously didn't care, and I didn't, so it wasn't an issue. It was, however, undoubtedly a violation of procedure.

                            Pray tell, just where did the nurses go wrong? I seem to be missing the point. I am assuming the nurses were nonchalant about FG's nudity. I get the impression that some nudists are OK with nudity on a beach but think nudity, as result of hospital procedures, is somehow something different altogether.

                              I think it depends on if they knew or suspected he was a nudist or not. Regardless of how we nudists feel, this would be absoultely humiliating/terrifying to the average textile American. So if they had no idea he was comfortable with nudity, they should not have left him exposed. If they knew he was comfortable, on the other hand, then I see nothing wrong with it, although it would probably would be against some policy (but then isn't everything).
