Health Leaders Media

Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, CA, last week said it has moved to terminate five employees and has disciplined a sixth for using “social media to post their personal discussions concerning hospital patients.” Hospital officials became suspicious earlier this year that a breach of patient privacy may have occurred on Facebook and launched an investigation but said that as yet it has found no evidence that patient names, photographs, or other information was posted on the site.
