  13. 13. Scenario 3 You’re in the middle of caring for a patient when a family member/caretaker asks to take a photo or video. You’re not comfortable since you don’t know how it will be used. How do you respond?

  16. 16. Scenario 4 – Key Learnings Guideline 6: Get your work done. • Wait until you are no longer in a patient area (and make sure you’re off the clock). • Use your personal mobile device, rather than a desktop computer.
  17. 17. Scenario 5 Over lunch, a colleague tells you about a wonderful experience caring for a cancer patient who had a successful proton beam treatment a few months ago. You feel inspired by the patient’s story and want to share it on Facebook, but know that this would be a privacy violation. A few days later, you see a story about the patient on Mayo’s Facebook page. Can you share the story now? Would it be any different if you see the patient’s story on TV or in the newspaper instead?
  18. 18. Scenario 5 – Key Learnings Guideline 1: All Mayo Clinic policies apply on social media. • Don’t create your own post about patients or refer to them on social media. • Share news and stories Mayo Clinic posts to its official social media accounts.

With the patient’s permission the nurse posts a picture of the patient along with several of the nurses caring for him on her unit’s private Facebook group. A friend of one of the staff members who knew the patient, saw the post and questioned her about the patient. Was this an appropriate post? Why or why not?

She doesn’t use patient names but makes disparaging comments about her patients and states she can’t wait until the end of the shift so she can hit the bars with her friends. Is this an appropriate post, considering it’s her private Facebook account and she doesn’t mention patients by name?
  22. 22. Scenario 7 – Key Learnings Guideline 3: Be professional • Never use social media in a negative or unprofessional manner.
  23. 23. Scenario 8 A nurse posts on Twitter about an upcoming job fair at Mayo Clinic.
