Managers at Genesys Regional Medical Center reprimanded a nurse for unprofessional behavior, based on a photo that ended up on Facebook, the Flint Journal reports.

The photo, which was taken in the early spring showed another nurse removing a splinter from Cathy Miller in an otherwise empty operating room at the hospital based in Grand Blanc Township, Mich.

Keep in mind that none of the photos involved patient care. This story is more about how some facilities are bending over backwards and really cracking down on work-related photos appearing on social network sites.
