Social Media in the Long Term Care Setting

Location: WEBINAR


BrownWinick attorneys, Rebecca Brommel and Megan Moritz will address "Social Media in the Long Term Care Setting" in a one-hour WEBINAR on Thursday, January 11, 2018 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. This WEBINAR is sponsored by LeadingAge Iowa.

Society’s constant access to smart phones, which allows us to take videos and photos and post them to social media, has added a new layer of complications for the long term care setting.  This WEBINAR will address a number of trending compliance issues in long term care facilities, as well as select best practice considerations with regard to mobile technology use by employees, residents and guests.


  1. Understand potential legal issues involving employees’ use of mobile technology (both at work, and personal use outside of work that can still affect the workplace);
  2. Understand potential legal issues and considerations involving resident privacy and potential abuse related to mobile technology and online communications;
  3. Understand potential legal issues and privacy concerns involved with use of cameras (whether placed by the facility or by families) in the long term care setting; and
  4. Learn best practices for handling mobile technology, as well as photo, video and social media issues with employees, residents and guests.
