Unethical to date staff person?

Okay, this is just a question, I'm not actually DOING it. Obviously it would be unethical for a staff doctor to date a resident or med student who they are responsible for teaching/evaluating, but what about a staff person in a different department? Is there anything unethical about that, if you don't interact with each other professionally other than seeing each other in the halls of the hospital?

I don't think that would pose a problem, especially if they're not even in your department. Doctors and nurses marry all the time. Where do you think they met?

I'd say that one's a total green light, unless your hospital has some sort of official policy about inter-office dating. :yes:

Just don't date the patients. ;)

Ha ha... no, patients are definitely off limits.

I'm a resident, and it just feels like a taboo thing to do for some reason (dating a staff person). Maybe b/c I'm in a small hospital, and word would get around.

When my husband and I started dating we actually worked the same job, on the same floor just different shifts. Our shift overlapped by 1/2 hour. It was very strange and we told our boss right away and she didn't have a problem as long as the work got done and we weren't hanging on each other at work. (We spent a lot of time in the stairwell :D ) Just like on Grey's anatomy last night that Burk told his boss up front. Better to cya then get caught later.

I have never been into someone or policy trying to dictate who I date (Im married now though). I would date whoever the he!! I wanted and wouldn't care what anyone else thought about it. In my eyes, there are very few cases that are "undethical" when it comes to chosing who *I* would date.

Word would definitely get around,especially if you hospital is as interested in drama as my hospital is. There was a love triangle going around for a while here between 2 nurses that work on the same unit and a phlebotomist. It was better than Y&R :laughing:
