Electronic Health Records - Laws and Regulations

You are an RN in an acute care facility working in a post-surgical inpatient unit as a shift supervisor. Many of the nurses who you work with are also your personal friends. Upon accessing one of your social media accounts, you noticed that one of your colleagues has posted information about patients they were caring for earlier in the week, and you are worried some of the information shared could be considered a violation of Protected Health Information (PHI). What laws/policies could this person be violated? Explain the consequences of violated the regulations surrounding PHI? How can you prevent this from happening again at your facility?
