Point of Care Scanning Policies

    As we are working on our information governance, we are striving toward getting better control of the areas that scan outside of HIM--point of care scanning--and ensure everyone is following the same processes at all sites.  For this we want to develop an overall scanning policy that can apply to all areas in all sites.
    Rather than start completely from scratch, does anyone have any existing scanning policies they would be willing to share?  Particularly ones that address the point of care scanning areas?
    Thank you so much!
