HOW YOUR USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA CAN AFFECT YOUR CAREER

Today I read an article in a local Philadelphia paper about Jefferson University Hospital firing an employee because of her posts on social media. Although her posts did not mention Jefferson Hospital, her posts were racist in nature. I do not know whether or not this employee is a healthcare worker who holds a license in Pennsylvania with the Department of State; however, if she is, she could face disciplinary action against her license. If you post comments that are offensive in nature, you could conceivably be disciplined by a healthcare professional board if you are deemed to be guilty of immoral or unprofessional conduct.

For additional information, please read my blog post from March 20, 2014 titled "How Could Social Media Use Lead to a Suspension of a License to Practice in Your Medical Profession?"
