General Disclaimer for Social Media Sites

March 2, 2011

Posting a general disclaimer on your practice's social media platforms protects both you and your patients.

Many physicians believe that they open themselves up to potential liability risks by engaging in social media. Limiting administrative access to only a few trusted employees and monitoring  your site routinely for posted content are both sound practices.
 
You should also add a disclaimer to your practice's Facebook page, and if you link to other social media sites from your own website, you should  also post that information there as well.
