Recording by Patients & Visitors (photos, video, audio)

Recording includes photography, video and audio. WakeMed is committed to respecting the privacy of our patients, visitors and staff; therefore, family members and friends must have the consent of you or your legal representative before recording the patient for any use. Recording of any type of medical procedure is not allowed. Because caring for patients is our primary focus, physicians and staff can ask to have the recording stopped at any time due to patient care needs and other circumstances. Patients and visitors may not record other patients and visitors, employees, volunteers or physicians without the written consent of the individual. Anyone who refuses to comply with WakeMed’s policy may be asked to leave or may have their recording equipment confiscated.

Social Media

If you or your family are engaging in social media activities while you are a patient at WakeMed, please remember to respect the privacy of the people surrounding you including other patients, their families/friends, physicians, and WakeMed employees. Please note that WakeMed employees, providers and volunteers are not allowed to send or receive friend requests and they should not be tagged in any social media photos. They have been instructed to remove any tags from pictures on social media sites that patients or their friends/family members have posted.


Complimentary notary services are available to inpatients only for Health Care Power of Attorney or a Living Will document. Please ask your nurse or call Chaplain Services or Spiritual Care at ext. 919-350-8000 to arrange for a notary.
