BELGRADE (Reuters) - A ban on grumpiness, gossiping, mini-skirts and rudeness is what the doctor orders to improve patient care in Serbia's hospitals, according to new rules issued by the country's Health Ministry.

The rules, posted on the ministry's Web site, say staff are not allowed to criticise their hospital or their superiors, and should not accept gifts for their services.

Hospital staff are often bribed with cash or gifts for attention or better treatment.

"There needs to be ground rules for decency," a ministry spokesman said.

Serbia's public health system crumbled during the conflicts of the 1990s, with patients' relatives having to provide everything from bandages and antibiotics to food.

Funding improved as stability returned but bribery, often involving hundreds of euros, is still widespread.

Good femme....

Gossip is considered a big sin in Jewish law. It's called: Lashon hara

Shmirat HaLashon/Right Speech

Lashon hara is hurtful speech, the making of damaging or derogatory remarks that might cause a person physical, psychological or financial harm. It is lashon hara even when you incriminate yourself in the telling.When working on the fifth point of MinyanSM, it is important to guard your words that you do not gossip and spread lashon hara.

Here are nine rules to remember:

1. It is lashon hara to convey a derogatory image of someone even if that image is true and deserved; it is slanderous (motzi shem ra) to do so when the image is false.

2. It is lashon hara to convey information about people that can cause them physical, psychological or financial harm.

3. It is lashon hara to embarrass people, even in jest, or to tell embarrassing things
about them when they are not present.

4. Lashon hara is not limited to verbal communication; the written word, body language, innuendo, and the like can also be hurtful.

5. It is lashon hara to speak against a community, race, ethnic group, gender, or age group as a whole.

6. Do not relate lashon hara even to your spouse, close friends or relatives.

7. Do not repeat lashon hara even when it is common knowledge.

8. Avoid r'chilut: Do not relate to people negative things others may say about them, for this may cause needless conflict.

9. Do not listen to lashon hara or r'chilut. Give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

Warning: It is not lashon hara to warn a person about potential dangers resulting from not-as-yet finalized business or personal relationships. Be careful to tell only what you know to be factually true; do not exaggerate; do not pass on hearsay; be clear that your intent is to help the other and not to further your own ends.

Gossip in Islam
Islam considers backbiting the equivalent of eating the flesh of one's dead brother. Backbiting about somebody harms that person without offering any chance of defence for the victim; just as a dead person cannot mount a defence if one were to eat his flesh. Since Islam has the concept of universal brotherhood, one should treat every other man like one's brother.
