- A Nigerian lady called Eketi has told doctors in teaching hospitals to stop violating people's bodies
- Eketi stated that it is important to ask for a person's permission before calling student doctors to examine them
- The young lady's post got people to share their embarrassing experiences at teaching hospitals
A Nigerian lady called Eketi recently took to her page on Twitter to educate doctors in teaching hospitals about consent.
According to her, many doctors in these hospitals must learn to seek a patient's consent before exposing them to student doctors and their colleagues.
Eketi stated that asking student doctors to come and examine the body of a woman without her consent is a violation of her privacy.
The young woman noted that it is not right that a doctor exposes the body of his patient to others without asking if she is okay with it.
Eketi said people who demand their privacy at teaching hospitals are disdainfully told to go to private facilities.
She noted that many patients do not mind having others around but their consent needs to be sought first.
