Will they still like me after they find out? Both Cantu and Fitzpatrick are on the spectrum, and while there are already plenty of online communities for people with autism, the mother-daughter duo were disappointed to find that none of the website owners actually have the disorder.

As far as dating amongst nurses Its rampant here People date each other, cheat on each other Theres some virus going around Sorry misunderstood. Have been married my entire nursing career so I have never bothered to look at work policies on dating.
It's not really a work policy dating thing. It's more ethical than that. They teach it during first year nursing. Had a whole 4 days lecturing on ethics.

Think, dating patients can recommend
Search Search. Hey good luck but when he starts displaying all the reasons that got him placed in mental health treatment you sure as heck can't say you weren't warned. Has 5 years experience. It's not so much that he's a patient, but that you met him in a psych hospital.
Apologise, dating patients think, that
Nothing against mental illness, however, this isnt the case where you met a guy, and then discovered he had a mental illness. I work in a psych facility and the patients there are really nice people of course that is until you read their chart and then it's apparent why they are getting treatment in the first place. Oct 8, Why is it always psych patients? This precise question comes up on AN at least once every few months.
Psych patients are an inherently vulnerable population, and the nature of psych nursing care makes the whole situation even more questionable. OP, consider using the AN search bar to search for 'dating former patient' or 'dating former psych patient,' and you will see hundreds of responses with a myriad of reasons why this is a terrible idea.
Nov 3, I am really disgusted with how more than one person has brought up that the person was in for a psych issue, aside from mentioning this could be a vulnerable population. You should really think about how you are stigmatizing people as a medical professional.
So people with mental health issues are not good people, they are not worthy of relationships or love? That honestly has not much to do with the issue at hand, it is just a dig at those who have mental health issues.
None of your spouses have ever been depressed? That is lucky.
Think about how you are perpetuating the stigma of mental illness which can and does happen to anyone, next could be you or your loved one. As a psych nurse of over 20 years I can only offer this sound piece of advice. That is unless you plan on never working in the psych world again and know it is true what NEO Soldier said I can't stress enough NO!!

For that dating patients refuse
Nov 4, This isn't about the ability of people with mental health issues being capable of healthy relationships. That is what I am saying, I am saying it is unnecessary for all of the negative things that have been said about being seen for mental health issues, that the only thing that was appropriate was the fact that someone said it can be a vulnerable population.
Let me point out what I am talking about : " Is this real?
Hey good luck but when he starts displaying all the reasons that got him placed in mental health treatment you sure as heck can't say you weren't warned " or "It's not so much that he's a patient, but that you met him in a psych hospital. Edited Nov 4, by carrienoka. I have a right to my opinion, madame. I have worked enough years to know that dating patients that you found at your job in a psych hospital is not the way to go.
Medical ethics and dating a patient. But what about a "mutually consensual" relationship between a doctor and a patient? When answering the question of whether it's ever OK to date a patient - current or former - or a patient's family member or caregiver, it's best to first ask exactly what dating is. Oct 04, Psych patients are an inherently vulnerable population, and the nature of psych nursing care makes the whole situation even more questionable. OP, consider using the AN search bar to search for 'dating former patient' or 'dating former psych patient,' and you will see hundreds of responses with a myriad of reasons why this is a terrible idea. A physician must terminate the patient-physician relationship before initiating a dating, romantic, or sexual relationship with a patient. Likewise, sexual or romantic relationships between a physician and a former patient may be unduly influenced by the previous physician-patient relationship.
I am not discussing the fact that you said don't date a patient from a ward, my issue is with you talking about humans like this. Sorry, I feel sorry that you work in this field and that is the way that you feel about your patients that you would talk about them in this way.
You should be helping to end the stigma, not perpetuating it. You specifically say nothing against mental illness and then go on to specifically say something about mental illness.
Nov 5, I'm not perpetuating the stigma of mental illness. People date mentally ill people and thats ok, but when a nurse is talking about dating her patient who happens to be mentally ill, I find it ridiculous. Nurses Specialties Students Career U.
