Medicolegal and Ethics Sexual relations between Physician and Patient

What's the correct answer???

Dr. Daugherty in KLN videos says... "NEVER"

Dr. Conrad Fischer in KLN medical ethics says... "Maybe in the future"

Ideally never. If you don't find it, then maybe in the future.

"what mom doesn't know cant hurt her"

but for sake of usmle, you tell the patient you cannot be with her romantically because you are her physician.

CF 100 cases wasnt clear in this (no source is, its a very grey area), it just said you cannot as long as you are her physician BUT you cannot refer her to another physician, so i dont know what options are left then... lol
it then said in pyschiatry you are never allowed to, regardless of if they are still your patient or not.

so its a very grey area that i myself have wondered alot.

As a side note, a relative of mine in the US -a plastic surgeon- had an affair with his patient, and consequently lost his license temporarily! I think for a year or something until the courts cleared everything up, i dont know.

So for purposes of step 1, NO!
For purposes of real life (this is for you nick), NO!

...But is good thing to know that there are no limitations regarding relationships among medical staff
