    I'm a student nurse from Australia and we were recently discussing in class the difficluty another nurse encountered when admitting a patient to hospital with a gynecological problem. The patient's husband insisted on speaking and answering all questions asked by the nurse and other medical staff on his wife's behalf. The husband said that this role in his wife's care was accepted in his culture. The question raised in this scenario was whether, in what is considered a culturally tolerant society an individual's cultural beliefs and practices should always be accepted or not. What are other people's views on this?
