- Jul 26 by mcmgalI agree with Imarisk2. It's hard to care for patients who become friends. There is always the chance that the relationship offer is not what it seems. Hate to be so cynical, but years of life teach me to be careful. And she gave you an out "if it was appropriate with your job". FYI-It's hard sometimes to care for friends who become patients, too.
- Jul 26 by psu_213I am in the "don't get involved" camp.
I realize that every one (the pt/the significant other/you) involved intends the relationship to be totally independent from work. But, what happens if something happens? What if something happens to the patient during the rest of their stay? What if something happen during a future stay to either the pt or their SO? The fact that one was your patient could put you in a very uncomfortable position.
