A nursing home that converts to an electronic health information system must establish policies and procedures to establish a secure password to access the database.  If the nursing home contracts out the maintenance of the health information system, that entity must maintain the confidentiality of the records.  Audit trails must be kept to outline the entries and deletions.  The nursing home must also maintain backup systems and implement preventative maintenance.  There must be adequate safeguards in place to protect the confidentiality and security of the information from unauthorized access.
