Social Media Policy

There are several active communities on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and other online sites led by professionals from Swedish. We encourage to you read, share, and interact with us on these sites. Before you post, please make sure you read our social media disclaimer below.

We welcome and encourage open discussion on Swedish's social media sites – including but not limited to our blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube pages and online story-sharing forums – and look forward to your comments.

We do make reasonable efforts to monitor participation to ensure that you stay on topic, are courteous and avoid making offensive comments. Please remember that information posted on any of our social media platforms shouldn't be considered medical advice and shouldn't replace a consultation with your health care professional.

Please be aware that once you post something online, there's the potential for many people to read your words, even years from now. As a result, we suggest that you exercise caution when posting medical information on any of our social media sites and that you not disclose personally identifiable information like your location, medical record number, financial information, etc.

Please note that Swedish reserves the right to:

  • Edit comments for content
  • Remove off-topic contributions
  • Delete offensive comments and attacks
  • Block offensive contributors
  • Delete spam and suspected spam

Swedish is not responsible for the content of any comments or responses posted to any website or social media site.

Please contact your healthcare provider for specific medical advice and/or treatment recommendations. Call 911 in the case of any emergency.
