Patients reportedly can write about any negative experiences. We'll see about that won't we. Readers can e-mail comments. So far it's not evident what happens with those comments. Patients may post from home.
Reportedly, a hospital staff person reviews each blog to make sure it is relevant before posting it to the hospital's site.
Well, think of it this way. Anybody with a computer and a connection can set up a blog in an afternoon. The way things are going, it's just a matter of time before an unhappy patient sets one up or uses one they already have to rip into a hospital. We've already seen it with a disgruntled Blue Cross employee.
So why not tip-toe into the environment in a very controlled manner?
