Whistleblowing and Boundary Violations: Exposing a Colleague in the Forensic Milieu
Nursing Ethics 2003 September; 10(5): 526-540
The purpose of this article is to examine the phenomenon of whistleblowing as it relates to a reconstructed case study of an erotic boundary violation that emerged from a clinical situation in forensic psychiatric nursing practice. The unique features of this case are illustrated with the help of a model for decision making. Although the ramifications of exposing a colleague are many, it is argued that, in this particular case, it was morally and ethically the right thing to do.
