Conduct and Behavioral Standards

The staff placed in AAPLA DAWAKHANA should adhere to the highest ethical and behavioral standards and provide patient care with utmost respect for the dignity of life. It is important that states orient health professionals to discharge their duties in a professional and courteous manner, facilitating greater acceptability of staff in the community as well. They should also be oriented to the concept of gender sensitivity and efforts should be made to ensure that gender sensitivity is inculcated in their conduct and actions.

Soft skills including an empathetic attitude, manners and courteousness at bedside should be a core value, especially towards the marginalized and vulnerable. The privacy and dignity of patients should be maintained, and the principles of patient confidentiality strictly adhered to dress codes (with a name badge) and adherence to punctuality should be emphasized.
