Fired for One Bad Social Media Review

The Office Manager read me a review. She barely took a breath and said, Dr. told me to fire you. I was shocked. The review did not mention any names, just titles. We had temp hygienists at times, so, I was not even sure if it was in reference to me. The review said the hygienist did not know how to take x-rays (I have been a hygienist for 15 yrs), discussed another patient in front of me (umm, Never!), could not read my chart (I am literate). It was also negative towards the Dr. and Insurance company. I told the Office Manager none of this was true. She said, I don’t know you well enough. (at this point she had been there about two months) I was prompt and professional. Took BWX, PA, or FMX for DA or sat a patient. Checked patients in. Not once was I reprimanded or even call in sick. It must be true…it was on social media! How absolutely ridiculous!! Has this happened to anyone else?

I agree with you, this is ridiculous! I’m so sorry this happened to you! While I’ve never had this happen to me, I’ve heard of it happening to others unfortunately. On the bright side, if an office doesn’t support you and is this quick to fire you, its not an office you want to be at anyway. Better to find out sooner than later. The least they could have done was see which hygienist (temp or you) saw the complaining patient though! Again, I’m so sorry this happened to you, look at it as a blessing in disguise!
