The article presents opinions from U.S. health care executives on whether cell phones should be banned in employee-only areas following the case of two staff dismissed for taking photos of patients in the emergency room and posting it on the Internet on social networking sites. According to Doug Vinsel, the cell phone banning idea is an overreaction and an impractical way to address the misconduct of two employees. Anthony Spezia says they would not support banning cell phones solely for the purpose of an articulated policy.
