Social media post found to be professional misconduct

A nurse in Saskatchewan has been found guilty of professional misconduct by the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association for a post on Facebook. Carolyn Strom, a registered nurse, took to social media to criticize the treatment her grandfather had received in the last years of his life at St. Joseph's Health Facility, where she is not employed. After an official complaint was made, the board considered the case and deemed Ms Strom to have failed to follow the codes of her profession.
