Product Description

Protect Residents’ Privacy—and Set Respectful Camera-Use Rules

With a camera on every cell phone, the use of social media in long term care facilities is a real privacy and compliance concern. Residents and visitors might not consider the long-term ramifications of random snaps posted to their favorite website, but you and your staff absolutely have to.

Join expert speaker Todd Selby as he explains your CMS-mandated obligations to safeguard residents’ privacy and confidentiality—and how to reconcile that duty with requests for the use of recording devices inside a resident’s own living space. Selby will offer real-world scenarios to explain when and how “granny cams” and other devices may be used in LTC facilities, and he will explore state law developments that are changing the limits you may place on camera use.

After attending this audio event, you will understand what Medicare Requirements of Participation rules impact camera use. You’ll be better able to handle sensitive issues regarding camera and social media use in your facility. And you’ll be equipped to enact policies that effectively address camera use and resident privacy.
