We received this e-mail from the Kentucky Hospital Association. Would like your thoughts, please:
“Recently, a hospital brought to our attention a change in the way Facebook handles check-ins. It seems that there is no longer a way to disable check ins at your hospital on your hospital’s Facebook page, meaning photos taken while inside your facility could show up on your page, and you would have no way to block them, unless you blocked all posts to your site. We are concerned about the HIPAA implications and have contacted representatives of Facebook and found that they are aware of the issue, but don’t currently have plans to change it.
So, we need to hear from you and your hospitals. Please let me know if you have heard similar concerns.”
