Male doctor being alone with a female nurse in the examination room

Dear Brothers & Sisters,
As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
I am a male doctor working in the examination room, and there is a female nurse in the same room. Until a patient comes in we talk about various matters. What does Islam say about this?
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)

Praise be to Allaah.

It is not permissible for a male nurse or male doctor to be alone with a female nurse or female doctor, whether in the examination room or anywhere else, because of the hadeeth quoted above, and because that leads to fitnah (temptation), except for the one upon whom Allaah has mercy. Men should be examined only by men and women should be examined only by women. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
