Kinda scummy to hide the fact the husband was cheating on his wife. But you know thats just my opinion
@Mortimer Smith Sr, doctor patient confidentiality extends to whatever the patient deems so, unless, the doctor believes it will be consequential to their health or the health of those around them.
It isn't a threat to others health if he is cheating so the Doctor can't legally say anything. Besides maybe he was trying out butt stuff with inappropriate equipment without infidelity. Anything's a dildo of your brave enough.
@Sambob, exactly what I was thinking. He may have been curious and using a dildo while she wasnt at home, we've all done it.
@Mortimer Smith Sr, yeah, the doc could find themselves in hot water if medical information was shared without the patients consent
@Mortimer Smith Sr, maybe he just likes to fiddle his bunghole from time to time.
Either way, I’m sure he doesn’t want to tell his mom
@Sambob, but it is a health threat to his wife, STDs spread at a higher rate in the Male homosexuals community than other populations, especially HIV/aids.
@phalcon , then I suppose it would be if the doctor noticed signs of STDs, otherwise I'm assuming that only the self inflicted anal destruction is the only issue here, to which that isn't affecting the wife.
I think if the Doc happened to find signs of an STD he would have to warn the spouse otherwise he has to stay silent. Of course, we assume the husband hasn't been playing squat the cone all by his lonesome.
@phalcon , the doctor cannot tell the wife about STDs either. That responsibility falls solely on the husband.
@Not him again, doesn't seam medically ethical to allow someoen to infect another human.
@phalcon , I totally agree with you, but unfortunately that's the law regarding doctor/patient confidentiality
@Not him again, but at the same times doctors do have the moral obligation to report domestic abuse to the police. Domestic abuse includes assault, which is what having sex with someone with a possaable disease.
@phalcon , I believe that's only the case with hiv/aids. And even still it's illegal for a doctor to tell anyone about it (I think, unless the law has changed). But if the person who has hiv/aids doesn't disclose it to their partner, I believe they can be charged with 2nd degree murder (I could also be wrong about the exact charge, but knowingly spreading hiv/aids is a capital offense of some sort).
I'm not saying that I believe in the policy, but a doctor cant disclose patient information without consent from the patient.
@Not him again, depends where. California just in the last year or two made it law that people no longer have to disclose HIV status.
But there are laws where if you know a crime is going to be commited and you don't stop it, or attempt to, you are charged with being an accessory to that crime.
The joys of conflicting laws. That's why people go to law school and become lawyers.
@phalcon , I would think California would be a proponent of this law. But that's why I didn't go to law school because of the idiocies involved with it
@Not him again, I mean in California you don't have to disclose HIV status with your partners anymore.
@phalcon , well California is almost dumb with the way they make laws. That being a prime example.
