Well I guess you are right I need to get a life.:roll not that I am from one of these agencys but I have been known to hang around here on my time off way too much
Why would they hang around. Unless there is blantent confidentiality issues being breached. I do not see the problem in expressing an opinion, especially and anonymous opinion.
Frankly I have seen very little that could even come close to a confidentiality issue. Without mentioning names or names of hospitals, geo areas etc. it is pretty hard to pin down who a patient might be.
And even if you think it fits a certain patient perfectly. Well... sorry but contrary to popular belief there is very little in this world that is unique. There can easily be more than one partient in the same situation. I think that is one of the points of this board, there are a LOT of commonalities in nursing.
I agree we need to be VERY
careful how we present information so as not to breach confidentiality but other than that I don't think they can kill us for what we think. We all say things here that we are thinking that we might never say publicly, and might never do. Some things said are just words nothing more.
yes I have on rare occasions seen some things that might be a breach but they are rare.
