Martina Mac,

If you cannot identify the patient through any means viewable in the =
photo, you do not need to worry about confidentiality issues.

HOWEVER - this caveat extends to mention of dates, times, location of =
initial contact etc. =20

So - Be careful to remove ANY and all identifying marks or remarks.

Regards-

Terry Dinerman EMT-P

  Subject: Use of digital camera


  Hi All,
  I was wanting to "Jazz up" our  monthly trauma case studies by using a =
digital camera in the resus room, to record pic's of the actual events.  =
("a picture paints a thousand words") and  was wondering if other =
emergency departments use the same or similar tools for education.
  Has it been effective? How did you conquer the "patient =
confidentiality" component?=20
  Before I present this idea to the department heads I would like to =
have some facts behind me.  I do plan to obscure faces etc.. and obtain =
patient /relative consent when possible.
  The photo's will only be used as a power point presentation for the =
staff in our emergency department ( and the paramedic crew that =
delivered the patient if interested).
  All positive, negative comments greatly appreciated
  Marty=20
