Check the ANSI/ISEA Z358-1-2009 Standard for minimum distances and flushingflow patterns and be sure that any installed modesty curtains or other enclosures provide adequate room so that the flow pattern will not be interrupted and potentially compromising the efficacy of the showering.
Personally, I'd rather be embarrassed and not injured or killed, but some folks obviously feel rather irrationally otherwise, which can be a real problem particularly in mass casualty situations.
