    We had a family at our facility that would record the nurse every time they came into the room. It didn’t matter what it was that the nurse was doing, their phone was recording the entire thing. Is this legal? What would you do in this situation?

    Were they record by photo or by voice, or just noting that the nurse came in at such and such times?


    No photographs or recordings in the hospital without signed permission from everyone in the photo or recording … at least at my hospital. I would ask them to stop and direct them to the PR office.


    Heck no! We did have a family that took notes on EVERYTHING! But in this case I’d politely ask them to not record me. Why are they doing it any way? Do they need teaching on interventions? What are they doing with the recording, is it to help them remember what was being said so as to fill in other family members not present? Is it voice only or are they video recording? I can’t imagine any reason to video record unless they are looking for mistakes! This needs to be brought to the attention of administration/DON.
