Study Questions Doctor Judgement On Personal Social Media Accounts

Not even doctors are immune from inappropriate social media posts. Young doctors often have “unprofessional” or offensive content on their Facebook profiles, a new study suggests. The study, of newly graduated urologists, found that nearly three-quarters had publicly identifiable Facebook profiles. And 40 percent of them contained unprofessional or “potentially objectionable” content. That ranged from profanity and images of drunkenness, to clear violations of medical ethics — such as divulging a patient’s health information.
