This is so terrifying to me. I can't believe that this is the "norm" in hospitals. disappointed.gif

I can't decide if I feel this is worse or not from when care providers do it on unconsenting conscious patients (like in labor, simply because they haven't been checked in an hour). The betrayal is worse but the emotional scarring is missed if they aren't aware. And the twisting of the next generation of drs to think this is ok is pretty bad.
