“I have no idea what hospital this was taken at, who the doctor is, or what happened to the patient, and you can’t tell from the picture,” Moore wrote on Reddit. “If anyone could, I would not have posted it; I thought it was simply a powerful picture worth sharing.”
Very interesting. So an EMT posted this with that really thorough caveat. He received permission (from whom?) without knowing where it came from.
All of this is HIPAA approved. Clearly the person who posted the photo knew what was at risk and decided the photo was worth posting. Is it uncool to post this kind of raw emotion anyway? I don’t know. It may be, but I’m kind of glad to let the public see what healthcare providers feel.
