If Funeral Directors Did This People Would Go Nuts
For many people, going to the doctor is already uncomfortable and in some cases embarrassing. That’s without having to worry about them sharing a picture of you on social media.
There’s an article floating around this week about doctors and nurses sharing embarrassing photos of themselves and patients on social media.
That’s what happened to a 23-year-old model admitted to Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital last June for excessive alcohol consumption. An emergency department physician allegedly took photos of her in which she appears anxious and disheveled. He’s accused of having posted the unbecoming shots on Facebook and Instagram.
In a similar incident in August, an off-duty employee of Spectrum Health in Grand Rapids, Mich., photographed an attractive female patient in the emergency department and posted the image on Facebook, with the blandly pervy caption “I like what I like.” He and several colleagues implicated in the misconduct are now free to seek upskirt opportunities elsewhere.
About 30 percent of state medical boards report having fielded complaints of “online violations of patient confidentiality,” according to a recent survey published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Think if this happened at a funeral home. People think funeral #selfies are disrespectful, what about deceased selfies?
The country would go crazy. I am glad that this isn’t happening in funeral homes and I hope that’s it safe to say it never will. And just to make sure, don’t take photos of funeral attendees either!
