Hi again. Thanks for your patience.
Yes, a security camera that is able to view patient records would be a violation of HIPAA. The security camera should be situated such that it cannot view patient records. Or, in the alternative, patient records should not be placed such that the security camera can view such records.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied. Also, please remember to provide a positive rating via the stars (and note that your positive rating is the only way that I'll get credit for helping you, so it is much appreciated!). Thank you. :)
