Users span all ages and ethnicities, and the tools are being used personally, as well as professionally, across the globe. Despite
the growing presence of social media in the workplace, many medical employers are unsure of how to regulate employee use of
networking sites and ensure the safety of employees, patients, and organizations alike. Are you confident that your employees aren't
violating patients' rights and putting your organization in legal jeopardy?
