Nurse Firing Highlights Hazards of Social Media in Hospitals – ABC News
The 28-year-old actress refers to herself as “The Native Tiger” on the photo sharing site, and describes herself as a “child of the Cherokee tribe,” “forest nymph,” “Lunar Leo” and “mother goddess to 2 bohemian revolutionaries – my kamikaze free spirit & my peaceful warrior” in her bio. Her first posts have included a makeup-free selfie and inspirational quotes. “First IG selfie,” she writes. “Early morning, no makeup, filter.” Fox posted a picture of the quote “Mercy triumphs over judgement” on Saturday, and captioned the photo, “Instead of being critical & judgmental choose to live in an attitude of kindness & mercy. When you give positive you receive positive #InstantKarma.” The actress had previously shared a photo of a bonfire on the beach, and included the quote, “Some women are lost in the fire. Some women are built from it.” Fox gave birth to her second son with husband Brian Austin Green in February; the couple have been married since June 2010. She will next appear as reporter April O’Neil in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on August 8.
The doctor who also works for the hospital was not reprimanded, she said. New York Presbyterian declined to comment on Dukes firing or anyone elses involvement. Duke is certainly not the first medical professional to get herself into trouble on social media. Last year, a St. Louis doctors Facebook complaints about a chronically late patient drew hundreds of outraged comments from Internet posters. And a student who was admitted to an Illinois hospital for extreme intoxication claimed a doctor posted photos of her to various social media sites — with commentary. Because nurses are often on the frontline of medical care, they need to be extra careful with what they post on social media, said Nancy Spector, director of regulatory innovations for the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. Most of the nurses that get into trouble have good intentions but they just dont know how far reaching social media can be, Spector said. Remember, nothing can really be deleted. Duke maintains that she did nothing wrong by posting the picture. She was, she said, showing how life and death situations play out every day in the hospital.
