Social Media Guidelines

Geisinger Health System – consistent with its mission of delivering excellent patient care – uses social networking sites to share education and information. We invite you to join us in promoting health and wellness by posting comments, questions, and suggestions. Since this is a public page for information sharing and education, please do not include any medical, personal, or confidential information in your comments. If you have questions regarding personal or confidential health information or require medical advice, please contact our Geisinger Health System central call line at: 1.570.808.7300 to be directed to the person who can best support your specific needs. As a public page, information and discussions on this page should not be considered medical advice. Your communications with Geisinger Health System through this page are informal and not part of our grievance or customer service process.  In addition, in the event of an emergency, call 911. 

BY SUBMITTING CONTENT (POSTS, COMMENTS, PHOTOS, ETC.) TO A GEISINGER SOCIAL NETWORKING SITE, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT THIS INFORMATION IS PUBLICLY AVAILABLE, AND THAT GEISINGER MAY USE THIS INFORMATION IN STAFF, FAMILY AND EXTERNAL PUBLICATIONS AND OTHER COMMUNICATIONS. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO HAVE YOUR INFORMATION PUBLISHED, PLEASE DO NOT POST THE INFORMATION.

Should we experience specific discussions and topics that generate a large number of comments, or warrant a unique discussion location, we will transfer these discussions to a dedicated discussion space or forum tab.
Please understand we may not see or review every post instantly. While this is Geisinger’s page, it is offered to you to help connect with others and to access educational information. Please help to keep this community positive and supportive. Geisinger reserves the ultimate right to edit or delete any comments or content deemed inappropriate. A comment will be deleted if it includes:

  • Comments that violate the privacy of our patients and their families
  • Content that violates copyright or that may be confidential
  • Off-topic and redundant comments (e.g., intending to sell or promote products, programs, or services not related to or affiliated with Geisinger)
  • Abusive or hurtful comments
  • Comments that use foul language or "hate speech" (racial-, ethnic- or gender-bashing language)
  • Personal attacks or defamatory comments (i.e., making negative personal comments about a fellow commenter) instead of just expressing a difference of opinion
  • Comments that our Social Media team deems inappropriate or offensive

Visitors to our social networking sites who repeatedly submit inappropriate content may be banned from our sites.

*Please understand the opinions expressed on Geisinger social networking sites are those of the individual author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Geisinger Health System.
