Patient photography or recording policy
Please respect all patients' and staff's privacy during your visit.
Photography or recording that is undertaken by the patient or at the request of the patient is appropriate as long as the photography or recording does not interfere with the care of patients. Patient photography or recording cannot include other patients or employees (e.g. physicians, nurses, staff) without their consent. Patient photography or recording is limited to patient rooms and/or discrete patient treatment areas. If any policies or the privacy of other patients or employees is violated by patient photography or recording, the photography or recording must stop and Risk Management or Security should be contacted for further guidance, as appropriate.
