Following media attention highlighting cases involving the posting of unauthorized photos and videos of residents on social networking sites, CMS published a memorandum announcing Social Media Guidelines. These guidelines put facilities on alert as to what their responsibilities are in protecting residents rights. This webinar will outline those guidelines and provide information needed to ready for your next state survey.
The participant will be able to:
– Discuss the facility and state’s responsibilities to the protection of residents
– List three examples of prohibited pictures and videos
– Identify four federal requirements sections under which facilities can be cited
