Because HIPPA and Patient Confidentiality is of utmost importance to me I will not be using the following:
- Patient Names
- Patient Ages
- Patient Identification Numbers
- Photos of Patients or Staff
- Hospital,Medical Or Health System's Names/Cities where they are located
- Any Other Privileged information
Got any further disclaimers to make?
How kind of you to ask!
