IMHO It is a legal question. Because of HIPPA reg. etc. I do not think it is an exercise in good judgment to be discussing your work place in an open forum.

Any information posted on a social website that can be linked to a resident/patient could become a HIPPA violation and not only get the poster fired, but also disciplined by the Board. Personally I think that posting during working hours is a violation of work ethic, because you are supposed to be working, unless you are on your break or at lunch. And....cell phones are usally prohibited at work, so what are they doing posting when there are so many folks who need attention? Usually the posters are the ones who are wasting time posting and complaining about how much they have to do. Keep social networking posting and work seperate for your own protection and the protection of those you care for. I know I wouldn't appreciate it if the nurse caring for my loved one spent most of the time posting on facebook instead of taking care of my mom/dad/family/loved one....
