Yeah, if she won't talk to male staff? We'll find some kind of female. PD, MD, RN, paramedic, anyone who's available. I would be highly surprised to find no female of any kind in an OB office... my MD/GYN won't do a pelvic without a female present with us (protection for him and for me.)

With this kind of dissociative/trauma reaction, you just take it slow, at the patient's speed, and you FIND the resource you need to ensure the patient's comfort and safety. If you can get them to come back to planet Earth, and they're appropriate/safe, you can release them as above... if not? You do whatever you need to do to ensure the patient comes to a safe location for appropriate treatment...
