After receiving numerous complaints, the Health Ministry has issued instructions to all the health funds and hospitals that they must allow patients - both male and female - to wear a light shirt (or bra) while undergoing a cardiac stress or Echo Doppler test that involves the attachment of wires to their chests. From now on, clinics that perform such tests must post a sign indicating this option so that patients can ensure their dignity/modesty.
