Excellent article on mixed sex wards, including potential issues caused by self declaration.

Oh bugger. Just noticed it's an old article. Sorry!

Yes it's funny I've found a few like that from earlier in 2017 and then the Guardian suddenly went quiet.

Still relevant though.

Patients and their relatives attested to intrusion, exhibitionism and leering from nearby beds, even with staff around. In 2009, Channel 4 discovered that almost two-thirds of sexual assaults by patients in hospitals (21 out of 33 in 2007/8), occurred in mixed-sex wards.

So, not an acceptable solution for bed shortages but fine for appeasing men?

Nice.

And why was no one bleating NAMALT when this was being discussed?

Last summer at least some people were still pretending women's rights (to safety and protecton) mattered.
