LOL – Hospital Social Media and Lack of Social Media Policy

A sense of humor. That’ what we all need – especially when it comes to all the “serious” issues surrounding Healthcare and the problems social media pose.

Well, I sure got woken up with a chuckle when I saw this tweet.

Enter a video staring yours truly produced by Vernon Dutton, RN – @nursingpins on Twitter. [Link]

The quick background to this story of “Phil Baumann may have been involved in a hospital incident” has to do with last week’s RNchat, in which we discussed a topic I referred to as “The Placenta Incident”. You can read up on it here and here.

In spite of the humor Vernon created in the video, we need policy administrators to understand the nature of these media, their nuances, their consequences and their proper role.

In the meantime, go have a laugh at my expense.

  1. Phil & @nursingpins: Vernon, this is wonderful. As an Adult Educator and one with an attention span as short as a Bunny on Crack I’m always looking for interactive tools to spice up my Talks/programs/trainings. While this is so funny it’s also a great bridge to begin to talk about a serious and important topic.

    Thank you to both of you for the development and sharing.
