Recognized by coworkers on AllNurses.com?Register Today!
- by medsurgrnco Sep 3, '08I try pretty hard to remain anonymous on this forum - wont' divulge how. I see others describing situations in very detailed posts, also listing state info or a supposedly first name. Wondering if anyone has ever had the experience of someone recognizing the situation described in the post and knowing that the post is about problems with that person. I imagine that could cause real problems at work. Currently in a situation where my coworker seems to know something "by osmosis", wondering if this could be how or if the coworker is fishing.
- Sep 3, '08 by wonderbeeQuote from sharrieI guess that opened the door for some honest discussion.Yep, I have read a post here that described discontent with management and the poster specified which hospital they worked for and signed the post with her first name.
It was my hospital and I was part of the management.

- Sep 3, '08 by MIA-RNMy guess is that it happens a lot more than we know. You probably won't get a lot of answers to your post for just that reason.
If a poster is not careful about the amount they give of the details, the doors for honest discussion might turn into doors hitting them on the butt on the way out...
I haven't found anyone that I am sure that I know on here...but some that I think I do.

- Sep 3, '08 by Xbox Live AddictI've never recognized anyone here, that's not to say that someone might have recognized me at some point. I try to keep my posts vague enough to disclose only minimal identifying info, though I'm sure I've left enough clues.
In an age where employers monitor off-duty employees via MySpace and Facebook, one can't be too careful.
