Some Docs avoid Facebook, others seek a web presence

The CEC has completed an extensive review of whether doctors & nurses & other hospital staff should have a web presence.  Complex ethical issues include:  what should a doc do if a patient "friends" her?  What if a patient posts suicide threats and the doctor/nurse see these messages after googling the patient?? Should the practitioners reach out to the patient, risking embaressment that they were searching for their patient online?    In related news, USA Today just published an article about some doctors who love Facebook and use it in their practice, and how others avoid it for fear of legal problems. 


What do you think??
