I worked on a med/surgery unit as well as psych clinic. I never initiate hugs w patients in either field. A hug may be innocent enough to you, but there is no way in knowing how your patient will interpret that hug! Nursing boundaries are put in place for a reason- for the safety of the patient and safety of the nurse.

I think you have a kind and generous heart, but you must tread carefully when it comes to the nurse-patient relationship.
