It is every healthcare professional’s responsibility to not only set but also maintain clear, professional and appropriate boundaries with every patient, their relatives or carers. Exceeding or crossing the professional boundaries implies that either the caregiver is getting too involved or either they are exploitive towards their patients, and has pursued inappropriate relationships with patients or their relatives. Therefore, boundary violation can not only considered just unethical but also possibly illegal.
It is every clinician’s duty to ensure a stringent framework that is necessary to build a professional relationship between the patient and themselves. Since healthcare givers are humans with emotions, it is essential for them to draw a strict professional line to not only protect the patient’s vulnerability but also themselves. Furthermore, getting a better understanding of professional boundaries also helps physicians to stay focused on their patient’s health.
