Customer Question

I was arrested by local police for an old warrant. While in custody, I had an anxiety attack and fainted. They took me to the hospital. While there, the hospital staff decided they were going to do a vaginally ultrasound since I was still in stitches from an emergency surgery 3 days before. The male office was in the room the entire time. I was put I to an open back gown and had the vaginally ultrasound procedure.....is it OK that he was there watching? Short a dealer officer had been called? I know a female officer was available because she showed up later to let him *take a break*. Couldn't he just have handcuffed me to the bed?
I still can't get this disgrace out of my head and feel violated. I have been seeing a psychiatrist and felt like ashamed. I am married and feel like I cheated on my husband.
