This video is designed for those who want to remain professional but have hit some bumps in the road. I understand and have come to the conclusion that many people hate truth, wisdom, and knowledge. To you who love straightforward insight keep watching.
If you haven't seen part #1 please stop this video and view the first video of this series so you canine on the same flow as me.
Before I get started, I want to emphasize that all gifts are not bad. I love gifts and have received small gifts of thanks down through the years. Many of our patients mean well and want to show us appreciation for everything we have done. However, every unit has a different policy on receiving gifts. One unit says no gifts over 50.00, another unit says no individual gifts only sealed gifts for the whole staff. Meaning no homemade baked goods, only sealed products like packaged gift baskets of cookies, flowers etc. I am not against people receiving gifts individually or corporately. My concerns are helping you to avoid slippery sloops regarding accepting certain types of gifts and business offers that can lead to a path of destruction regarding your career.
DISCERNING THE WRONG GIFTS:
Receiving constant gifts all of the time
-Flowers twice a week
-Receiving restaurant food often in that month
-Money over 50.00 often
Doing business with the patient
-Selling products with and to the patient--
I had one patient that didn't pay me back and this created a weird feeling when I interacted with the person. However, it was all my fault, because I had no business doing that.
-Paying the patient to do a start-up or a service
-Giving money to the patient to do a website or service, I am not talking about giving money for some candy or something the patient is selling. That is different.
TAKE MY 2 SITUATION INTO CONSIDERATION
-One patient told me that he wanted to bring me some expensive gift. I told him not to because I can't accept it for I felt it was too much. Later that year he was angry at me regarding something that was out of my control. Imagine if I accepted that expensive gift, he would've said: "I want my gift back, you don't deserve nothing"!
-One of my patients out of the goodness of his heart wanted to help me start a non-profit and for me to start paying for his services to get it done. However, I declined because
1. What if I have issues with his services? Would that affect the quality of care that I give him? Resentful/angry?
2. What if something happens to him before he fulfills his service obligations to me?
I was right to say no because not too long after he offered to help me start, he sadly passed away. Imagine if I gave him the 2,000 he requested. I WOULD never get it back and it would be all my fault. Rules manytimes help to help you escape disaster, reprocution and even death in many cases.

He offered to help her get out of her job, and start a business in the field of hair. She gleefully accepted!
