Earlier this year, we noted that the Journal of Medical Ethics was recommending doctors stay off Facebook entirely. I thought that was kind of silly, so long as doctors were aware of what they were doing on social networking sites, what was the problem? Well, apparently, not all doctors are particularly smart or discreet when it comes to using such tools, and a doctor in Australia has been reprimanded for revealing patient info on his Facebook account... which the patient later saw. You would think that even if a doctor was clueless enough to reveal info about patients on Facebook that he or she would at least keep that info private, but apparently, not every doctor has basic common sense.
