If they post the picture on FB and you can access it without a pass word there is essentially no expectation of privacy. However...it is her private property
. I would not go sharing it anywhere without the patients expressed permission as it involves a minor child. You are on uncharted territory and in your excitement... might make a grave mistake
...why risk it?
I would say that if you used the photo without her permission it still could be a violation of HIPAA as it was her camera, her hospital room (expectation of privacy) and you were there as an observer/student.
Were you there as a nursing student representing your program even though the doctor was your Dad? I would check you schools
social media policy before you get yourself terminated from your program. Why do you WANT
this picture? It really is the patients private moment.
Have you asked your Dad if HE minds if you ask HIS patient for HER PRIVATE PHOTO?
