Information sharing on SNS

It is easy for people to understand that information that can be used to identify a patient must not be posted on SNS, but decisions about information that can or should not be written on SNS regarding the situation in the hospital varies depending on individual values, making instruction difficult

There are problems not only with students but with working nurses in how they express themselves on SNS

If problems in nursing students’ handling of patient information on SNS are surfaced, we may lose patients willing to cooperate with the next practicum

Considerations for patients being cared for by nursing students

Permission is obtained from patients for information sharing between students

There is an understanding that permission for students to share information is obtained when a patient consents to the practicum (actual permission is not obtained)

If detailed explanations including the particulars on the purpose of the practicum and handling of information, patients may refuse care by nursing students
