Thank you for all the wonderful examples. The take home tip is useful as physicians have asked nurses to take pictures and send them so they don't have to come assess a patient. I will not use my cell phone for business.

Although Dr. Painter had some very valuable points and wonderful examples to illustrate her topic, I was very disturbed by the way she presented information about patients and employees. Her tone and choice of words were insensitive and at some points unprofessional. Although it may have been an excellent presentation in the context of the conference, I am disappointing that this is the free CNE for the month.

Totally unnecessary comment about the "Catholic Church" early in presentation. Irrelevant, unprofessional, and inappropriate. UPMC has plenty of issues of its own to use as examples. Also, snarky tone and flippant remarks about employees, physicians and patients were inappropriate.
