What caught my eye this week was the case of a young doctor involved in a medical error. Dr. Ricardo Quarrie, a cardiothoracic fellow at Yale New Haven Hospital at the time, was publicly accused of lying to a patient to cover up a surgical mistake. As the case evolved so did the long digital trail associated with his alleged lying. The attorney who made the accusation recanted but the genie was out of the bottle and the infosphere was seeded with bad stuff about this poor guy.
So the story is: How does this guy get his tarnished digital reputation back?
What struck me about this report in CNN was the experts interviewed and the sense of helplessness conveyed about this guy. Basically, he was screwed.
I can’t agree. So I went into The Exam Room and whipped up some advice for Dr. Ricardo Quarrie. It’s a change in format to something short and focused. Only 17 minutes and dripping with practical wisdom for everyone with a digital footprint. Check it out on below or on Stitcher or wherever you listen to podcasts. Or just hit play at the bottom of the post.
I think I’m 6 podcasts in to date. I want to thank every one of my guests so far. As I always joke, an exam room is a place where awkward probing happens. Thanks to my guests so far who have been brave enough to go on the record with someone as unknown as me. You can see all of my casts so far over on Touchpointmedia.health.
