Healthcare: Does your facility have a policy on the appropriate use of social media, such as Facebook and Twitter? Are you aware of any disciplinary actions from improper use of social media?
There is a policy at the 2 hospitals I work (1 full time, the other PRN) and yes, I am aware of multiple occasions where someone was disciplined and/or fired related to postings on facebook.
no. I'm not aware of any established or written policy regarding facebook ot twitter. i do know that some computers on the unit prevent employees from accessing facebook.
