These questions are for any nurses who would like to respond.
Do you know of any situations in your nursing history regarding a nurse crossing professional boundaries?
How do we maintain professional relationships? What are some warning signs that the professional relationship the becoming unprofessional? Is there anything wrong with becoming personally involved with a client?

In the LTC I used to work in, the PM shift supervisor started a romance with a CNA, caused MUCH hard feelings among the staff, due to real and percieved favoritism, quite a few employees went to the Administration,to ask them to at least seperate the two off the same unit, same shift and the only answer they recieved was, "its none of your business!" " I trust her judgement explicitly!". I agree that what goes on away from the facility is none of our business, but they made no bones about being a couple at work, "honey" this and "honey" that, etc. I guess after the PM shift supervisor's CNA boyfriend was arrested
at work, the administration finally agreed to have them work differnt shifts or different floors. Can you imagine calling your supervisor "honey"? HA!
