    I know this has been asked some time back regarding body cameras and law enforcement - however, has anyone developed a policy recently regarding Hospital Security Guards and and the use of Body Cameras?

    Trinity,

    I don't know how to add the link here, but search "Police Body Camera Use" in the Confidentiality, Privacy and Security Engage community and Nancy Davis has posted a link to a policy that HIPAA COW published.

    I tried the link that Nancy provided but the link no longer works. If anyone has a policy on this or another link, I'd be interested in knowing more as well.

    Thanks,

    Glenda,

    Enter "HIPAA COW" into your web browser.   On their web page select:

    a. Resources
    b. HIPAA COW documents
    c. Privacy & Security
    d. Accept the disclaimer
    e. Scroll down to Law Enforcement 164.512(f) and select number 4,  Use of Body Cameras by Law Enforcement.

    Hope that helps.  HIPAA COW is a wonderful resource!

    Thanks so much Glenda.  I did review the HIPAA COW and it will be very helpful. I was hoping someone may also have one that is geared towards their own Security staff wearing the body cameras.  (member of their own work force)
