HIPAA Headaches: Social Media & Privacy
October 2, 2018 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm (ET)
A patient recently visited our ED with an unfortunate injury. While the injury was clinically intriguing, our ED staff appeared to be intrigued for other reasons. Several photos were taken of the injury by staff and some of these photos were posted to social media sites. The physician assigned to the patient called a couple of his physician friends who were in the hospital to come see the patient’s injury. According to reports we received, the physician and friends had a good, hearty laugh at the patient’s expense. We have a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”) policy and all of our staff receive education on patient privacy at time of employment/appointment and periodically thereafter. How could this have happened? Now what?
