As a small town home health nurse I am in the position where I know everyone and everyone and their uncle know me and my family so since I have been on Facebook a number of years I have found myself frequently involved in care for patients either on my Facebook friends list or their family. During that process I will have sweet patients and their family wanting to thank me, etc and I feel it to be a serious gray line regarding HIPAA. I explain to the patient that it is really not appropriate to mention me as their nurse or to try and take pictures of me (which has happened frequently with me not allowing) but it always happens. If I am tagged I will hide it, but other than shutting down Facebook all together I don't know how to stop it. Like I said, I have so many people on my facebook from my town that I would have to delete all of them pretty much. I enjoy facebook and do not involve work in my statuses so tell he how you have handled this when it comes up.
