L.A. County Board of Supervisors Calls for Chaperones During Sensitive Medical Exams
On Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors called for requiring chaperones at sensitive medical exams -- such as breast and pelvic exams -- in health care facilities across the country. The chaperone could be a registered nurse, nursing assistant or medical evaluation assistant. The move comes after the county paid a $1.3 million settlement over allegations of sexual molestation by a physician.
