The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends that each hospital have a one-sheet consent form with HIPAA related language that the patient should sign acknowledging that in an effort for the hospital to assist in the process of locating a volunteer photographer, some personal information about the mother/baby will be divulged to NILMDTS. The Hospital Authorization for Release of Information form is available in our Forms & Documents.
