  1. Is there really no way to refuse a mandatory flu shot?

    Thanks for the info but at this point, there is nothing anyone in the world could tell me that could change my mind from my beliefs. I fully believe the flu shot is apart of a larger conspiracy to harm our population. Am I a conspiracy theorist? You ...
  2. Is there really no way to refuse a mandatory flu shot?

    My facility doesnt mandate any other vaccine except the flu shot.. Thats why..Its almost too obvious why the flu. And yes there are parts of the job you are against like giving certain medications for certain reasons. Not all parts of healthcare is 1...
  3. Besides the medical and religious reasons which are clearly only for a rare few, is there really no hope for the healthcare occupation and those who refuse under all circumstances to get a flu shot? I was looking online to find some solutions on how ...
  4. The official guidelines for patient/caregiver relationships?

    Reading that boucheur from the ncsbn it says, This is kind of what my last point was. Every situation needs to be evaluated individually. A patient who is misdiagnosed even and doesnt even need treatment and will probably be gone by tomorrow is a m...
  5. The official guidelines for patient/caregiver relationships?

    Who makes the universal laws on the issue though? Whos word do we follow? For example the General Media Council actually did the opposite and stated it is up to the caregivers discretion and no real time limit is imposed. Green light for doctors to ...
  6. I know there are a few threads on dating patients. I have a few questions that go a little deeper than just dating but all relationships, whether they are intimate or non-intimate. What are the boundaries? In many of the threads I have read, most of ...
  7. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    How is it a pretty broad brush? I simply said some dont care. This is the truth. That is not a broad generalization but merely the truth. It could happen and it does and if it does, you are still back at square 1. What then?
  8. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    Exactly. Different settings require different circumstances. In long term care facilities, relationships are already much more personal. In short term facilities where some patients are only there for a matter of days and small errands/gifts are done...
  9. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    Patient B is the patient I am talking about. The patient that needs a phone card to call loved ones but cant leave said facility. Or the patient who cant stand the facility food and has the money for a takeout meal but needs someone to get it. I hone...
  10. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    What do you think about a personal relationship after the patient is no longer under care services? How long should be allowed before a relationship is pursued?
  11. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    I understand. That makes sense actually. Social worker is fine I just wanted to know what to do in a facility where no one cares but you. I have seen patients with genuine urgent needs and literally nobody does anything about it. There is no referenc...
  12. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    Former patients? So lets say for instance you live in a foreign country and you rarely if ever see any people of your kind. One year after many years of working you come across someone you finally make a connection with on a deeper level. Two respons...
  13. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    In my faculty, we were told not to have personal relationships with patients, nor run outside errands for them such as food runs and such. However nothing was said about inside runs such as vending machine runs nor was anything said about giving gift...
  14. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    Thats where it gets tricky. What is the difference with giving them food from the cafeteria and food from your lunchbox, vending machine, or outside of the facility? If you are on break/off duty and you come back to assist them I see no difference. Y...
  15. Doing favors or giving gifts for patients: Unacceptable?

    Exactly. I know in many facilities that it is very common for workers to give gifts/do favors for patients especially those who are limited in mobility. It is almost commonplace but the rules will suggest otherwise with regards to some favors such as...
