For example: Kim, a neonatal ICU nurse, has cared for baby Sara for the past month. Baby Sara is about to be discharged today in good health. The baby’s parents want to give Kim a personal gift as an expression of their appreciation and have also invited Kim to the baby’s upcoming christening party. Is it ethically permissible for a nurse to receive personal gifts from patients or patient’s families or to socialize with patients or patient’s families outside of the hospital setting?

    That will probably depend upon the hospital's code of ethics. Teachers are permitted to accept small gifts from students and often attend graduation parties for them.
