Ask your provider for a booklet that contains a legal form which allows you to express your wishes for care, if you become unable to decide in the future.

A medical chaperone is available when your provider conducts a sensitive exam. As of July 1, 2023, the Oregon Medical Board (OMB) requires a medical chaperone be offered to all patients for these exams. A chaperone is trained to know what to expect during an exam and is there to ensure patient and provider safety. A chaperone is offered for your comfort, but you may choose to decline to have a chaperone present.

Please speak with your health care provider if you have questions about a sensitive exam or the use of a medical chaperone.
