A UK medical practice has posted a sign attempting to prohibit public conversation by patients. Citing a Zero Tolerance Policy apparently invoked to protect NHS staff, this type of veiled threat illustrates how disconnected the medical community can be from the realities of medicine in a connected age.
You can read about this over at the BBC.
True abusive behavior not withstanding, doctors have no business telling patients where to conduct their conversations. In fact, I thought this type of thinking went out of style years ago.
Should doctors be allowed to invoke a zero tolerance policy for public patient dialog?
h/t to Amol Utrankar for pushing this into my signal.
