Cool paid externship with hospital letterhead.. is it good?

Hello all,

I am doing externship with americlerkship and i may get LoR with hospital letterhead.
Basically we can not go into any hospital with any attending without permission from hospital board(my attending had notice from hospital that he cannot bring students like that from outside).

Now the problem is that when i give my LoR to ERAS, PDs will find out that i did paid electives. and when they see hospital letterhead, they will definitely ask me how i got hospital letterhead and they might consider it illegal. So, is it good to have hospital letterhead in paid externships?

Can anybody spread some more light in this. Specially our experienced forum staff member.
