In healthcare, examples of boundary violations can include:

Sharing confidential information about clients or patients without their consent, violating their privacy and trust.

Revealing personal information that is not relevant to the professional relationship, potentially blurring boundaries and undermining the therapeutic process.

Violating physical boundaries by engaging in inappropriate touch or proximity with clients or patients, which can cause discomfort and undermine trust.

See a Sample

A chiropractor submitted bills to a patient’s insurance for approximately 85 visits which did not occur. When the patient confronted the chiropractor with these charges the chiropractor admitted the charges were fraudulent. The chiropractor also admitted to creating fake appointments in a hidden calendar on the clinic computer where staff would not see them and be alerted.
