A social worker gave herself a high rating on a review page

Not sure how to react to this. It feels very unethical.

Hello - what would you do if an employee's former coworker posted a photo of a client on that employees sight and the current employee left it on their facebook page for over a month? There are no names or relationships listed.

I believe this violates HIPAA and should not be posted, not even for a second. I would go to the co-worker and tell her it is breaking HIPAA rules. Sometimes people are not aware, even our co-workers.
