Telehealth Booth Use Acknowledgement
By using this telehealth booth you acknowledge that:
- Telehealth appointments may be conducted by videoconferencing, video images, still (high quality photo) images, or by telephone conference and that this appointment will not be the same as a direct patient/health care provider visit due to the fact that I will not be in the same room as my health care provider.
- There are potential risks to this technology, including interruptions, unauthorized access, and technical difficulties and that you or your healthcare provider can discontinue the telehealth appointment at any time if it is felt that the videoconferencing connections are not adequate for the situation.
- The St. Mary’s County Library does not clean the telehealth booths between uses. Please use health and safety precautions. Use of the telehealth booths is solely at the discretion of the individual, who agrees to hold the library harmless in all matters related to their use.
- The St. Mary’s County Library is simply providing a location to take a telehealth appointment and is not responsible for any non-HIPAA compliant software used during my appointment by my telehealth specialist.
- The use of the kiosk is at the discretion of the library in which it resides; the privilege to use can be withdrawn at any time with or without reason.
- While this booth has been designed for enhanced sound and visual privacy, the booth is located in a public space and complete privacy, especially when entering/exiting the space, cannot be guaranteed.
The user understands the above acknowledgement and waives litigation against the Library, their staff and/or related telehealth associates for any reason prior to, during, and at the conclusion of the telehealth booth use.
