I'm fairly sure that in this situation, a consent form must be signed, or you have to give verbal consent before they bring in students of any kind. If they didn't ask, you should have told them straight out that you were not comfortable with it, and asked them to leave. YDI for not speaking up for yourself, and if you did have to give consent, I don't know why you're complaining about anything. Just remember, those students one day will be doctors. Would you rather they just did things based off charts?
I didn't post anything that was against the rules. I simply stated that if there was a consent form signed, I personally don't understand why it's an FML. If there wasn't one signed, then the person should have said something right then and there about their comfort level. I did not say the person shouldn't have posted, only that I didn't understand why they felt this way after the very likely event that they consented to the students being there in the first place. As was said previously by someone else, the person who posted really didn't give enough information to judge properly. Also, I think it's hilarious that the commenting rules state you can't say in a post whether or not something is "FML worthy." Even though that's not what I did, I feel I need to point out that telling someone they "deserved it" is telling them that what they are saying is not fml worthy because they caused the situation themselves. It's hypocritical to have a "you deserved it" option, and then to say calling someone out in a comment is violating the rules.
Don't you have to agree to have nurses in training observe you? If not, they're all mature adults and -should- be professional about it.
You didn't have to agree to it if you were uncomfortable. No doctor has the right to force a patient against their will. All you had to do was politely refuse. End of story.
