Arrow Gyrus Daily Questions; Ethics #3

A nurse, who works in a physician's office, asks her employer to become her pri-mary care physician. The physician's best response is

(A) "I can be your primary care physician and I will start a chart for you."

(B) "I can be your primary care physician but only if I am not paid."

(C) "I cannot be your primary care physician because I am your employer."

(D) "I cannot be your primary care physician but I can treat you without starting a chart."

(E) "I cannot be your primary care physician but I can write prescriptions for you occasionally."

I think the answer to this should be C.

This is because in my opinion, in doctor patient relationship, the patient lets down their guard and confide in everything to the doctor. This puts the doctor in a position where he can emotionally manipulate the said patient (i am sorry, i cant find the proper syntax to describe my opinions :sorry .

Nice questions gyrus..
I would go with C, he cannot be his primary care physician, when one enters a doctor-patient relationship a lot of sh.it comes into play, private stuff and such, he is biased because he is her employer ummm. Is like wanting to date your patient you know... kind of weird.

The answer is C. "I cannot be your primary care physician because I am your employer."

The physician.'s best response is, "I cannot be your primary physician because I am. your employer." Except in emergency situations, physicians should not treat family members, close friends, or employees since personal feelings can interfere with medical decision-making.

Also, such patients are likely to be uncomfortable answering questions concerning sensitive information, or having intimate physical examinations when needed. Physicians should not treat patients without keeping appropriate records-. nor should they write prescriptions for individuals other than patients.
