Courtesy of a good friend of mine over at Jumblerant - I've been directed to another discussion regarding the use of social media in the workplace in general, and EMS in particular. Admittedly this was an infraction that harmed no-one else but the person involved, and no patients or their confidentiality were compromised, but nevertheless the discussion points are there.
Is there an argument for total freedom of speech in and about the workplace, or should there be some limitations? Is chatting to a friend in private any different from posting a rant on Facebook or Twitter?
To my mind, and the rule I've tried to follow whilst writing this blog is that biting the hand that feeds you isn't particularly wise. So, say what you think, but think about how you say it!
