Trigger warning: discussion of coercive medical care, involving genitalia, rape analogy
I wrote a post about a medical procedure I observed. I want you all to know I tone down my reactions an awful lot on my blog. I know that potential residency sites may end up reading it, and so may people from the administration at my medical school. I actually really do question the necessity of catheterizing this girl. But, I tried to word it as if I supported the decision, I was just disturbed by the reality of what the procedure entailed.When is a person old enough to refuse treatment?
