Male doctor being alone with a female nurse in the examination room
I am a male doctor working in the examination room, and there is a female nurse in the same room. Until a patient comes in we talk about various matters. What does Islam say about this?
be to Allaah.
It is not permissible for a male nurse or male doctor
to be alone with a female nurse or female doctor, whether in the examination
room or anywhere else, because of the hadeeth quoted above, and because
that leads to fitnah (temptation), except for the one upon whom Allaah
has mercy. Men should be examined only by men and women should be examined
only by women.
