The above link is to an essay written by a Paramedic from the State of Kansas who got into a very large amount of trouble by being less than flattering in a blog post that he wrote about a specific patient. There is no link to the actual blog that I know of, but in the above letter he stated that he broke patient confidentiality.
The hit he took was huge. He lost two jobs, lost his license for 90 days, and was almost barred from practice indefinitely. Two of his coworkers were suspended for writing comments as well.
Just a note for us EMS bloggers. Do not do not do not violate patient confidentiality, ever. Change any and all details. Not only is it good for your patients, it’s good for your career. I like the EMS blogosphere, and I do not wish for it to disappear because of any like incidents.
