Should Dialysis Workers Be Banned From Having Patients as Friends on facebook?

Health care workers at a Dialysis Center were told to remove dialysis patients from their friend’s list on facebook. It appears the center wants to hamper Dialysis Patients and care givers from forming relationship where they might discuss common concerns.

After the large non-profit corporations took over, the patient to dialysis technicians ratios were increased to levels that no longer afforded time for technicians to form a bond with their patients. Those bonds helped patients feel they and the care giver were a team working together for the patients benefit. Present work loads at the major for-profits barely allow time to prepare for the next patient, let alone get to know the patient.
