Welcome! Thank you for your question.
As an employee
they can limit your relationship with this man to assure that there is still a boundary as the caregiver. This includes establishing rules that prevent you from taking gifts, becoming a fiduciary for him like a power of attorney
, becoming a beneficiary
under his will or engaging in a physical relationship.
You should have the freedom to engage in a friendship. The man does have the right under the patient bill of rights
to choose who visits him or who he associates with so long as he is competent. However, the restrictions can be demanded on you so long as you work for the facility.
