Nurses typically choose their profesión because they are caring people. We admire and applaud this compassionate trait, and we want to serve our clients with caring professionalism.
At Communities of Care, we emphasize the need to blend professional boundaries with care and compassion. We have specific trainings on professional boundaries that nurses view during the hiring process and review annually. We have an open-door policy for discussions about professional boundaries. Home care can have many unique gray areas, where there may not be a clear rule or precedent. We invite dialogue and conversation with nurses and clients to determine the best approach for everyone.
One of the most important elements of professional boundaries is open and honest communication, which is a cornerstone of our culture at Communities of Care. We keep conversation lines open between clients, nurses, client families, physicians, and our office staff. We are proud to be a leader in professional and compassionate home care in the Twin Cities.
