I've noticed a lot of confusion both from my coworkers and bloggers on the internet about what is "work appropriate" blogging. Basically a lot of workplaces (including my own) have updated code of conduct polices to reflect rises in social media. Basically the policies are pretty ridiculous. For example, I cannot post about my workplace on a personal blog where my name and workplace can be connected. This means on my facebook account I cannot say "I work for company X" and then make a facebook post saying how much my boss is a complete retard. Even if I don't name my workplace or boss, I still have my workplace listed elsewhere. That allows someone to make the connection between me and company X. Management can fire then me at this point.
Fortunately I am aware of this and I don't publish my real name or workplace on this blog. Also in the healthcare field privacy is incredibly important and I would never jeopardize anyone's personal information. Any names or dates you see here are altered to protect privacy, even though they are true events. Companies are asking for this same right to privacy. I think consumers have a right to know everything they can about companies they choose. That's why I like to post about how hospitals work so you, the consumer, can stay informed.
