While there are a lot of HIPAA issues to keep track of regarding patients with cell phones taking photos in clinic, I use them a lot. This is a photo of a patient’s wife (which is why she isn’t wearing gloves!) taking a photo of his toe so he can see the wound (it’s too far away down on his foot). I use them to take step by step wound care instructions, too.
