Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?

Last month I wrote about the new restrictions on personal expression that have been placed upon residents. There have now been some official clarifications. Ever get home from a difficult day at work and wanted to post on Facebook something like "today was a rough day at work"? Or maybe had an inspirational day and wanted to post on your blog: "today I really feel like I accomplished something?" (And maybe even share what it was that you accomplished?) We are now explicitly, officially prohibited from making any such public comments. The more cynical among us are beginning to suspect that the medical center's concerns have less to do with patient privacy than with potential litigation.

And, by the way, in this public forum I can neither confirm nor deny whether I had a good day at work today.
