New Guide: Best Practices for Social Media

Magnified illustration with the word Social Media on white background.

As media outlets and even some members of Congress have turned their attention to inappropriate use of cell phones and social media by long term care staff, AHCA-NCAL has developed a Best Practices for Social Media guide outlining best practices for social media use at nursing centers and assisted living communities.  The document offers tips for policies centers should have in place and also training to provide to staff.

The best practices include advice on ensuring resident privacy, how to use social media as a company or center, and how to communicate with and train your staff.
