If you are at a teaching hospital can a patient tell everyone to get out other than the regular doctor?

I was accosted by several students who followed the Doctor in. I didn't like that and I told them to leave.

    The patient always has the right to tell unwanted people to get out of the room unless there is some legally or medically required reason for the extra individual(s) to be there.

    Yes, of course, but if you don't want residents and med students around, don't go to a teaching hospital.

    They need to learn, and you can help. I wasn't at all bothered when I had major surgery last year and was in a top university teaching hospital. I was pleased to be of assistance to the residents and students.

    This is the U.S.A. and there is no way I will tell you what town I am in. It is not a hard question, My reference to teaching hospitals in general. I know it may vary but this is a question about what policies in teaching hospitals refer to medical students to get histories for example.

      I can't believe you used the word "accosted". I think you need to look it up in a dictionary. Med students aren't "accosting" patients when they follow the doctor into a room. There's nothing odd about medical students taking histories in a teaching hospital. How are they to learn?

    Yes. The doctor should always ask your permission first and you have the right to say no.

      It is common at teaching hospitals because they need as much experience as possible and most people don't mind too much but, as I said, you do have the right to insist on a private consultation.

    You really think someone here would know something so specific........ You didn't even mention what country, state, county, town, village, hamlet it is in
