It is malpractice for a physician to engage in any sexual conduct or relationship with a patient. There is no justification for whether in the office, via e-mail or anywhere else for overstepping appropriate boundaries in the physician-patient professional relationship.
Contact us to speak to a North Carolina physician sexual misconduct lawyer now to get help.
The reason is that the physician-patient relationship must be focused on the care and healing of the patient. The doctor must concentrate on the health of the patient. The patient must have trust in the doctor and this trust cannot be exploited.
Examples of overstepping appropriate boundaries include:
Physicians should also refrain from unprofessional relationships with nurses, supervisors, drug vendors or any co-worker where good, unbiased professional judgment might be affected.
