What happens when a hospital allows a film crew unfettered access to its facilities… but doesn’t obtain permission from their patients?
New York Presbyterian Hospital was slapped with a $2.2 million fine for allowing a network reality show film the death of a trauma patient without seeking permission from the patient’s family.
Healthcare providers often enter into agreements with third party contractors to provide services dealing with electronic information. Unfortunately, there may be times when the relationship between a provider and its contractor goes sour.
The family of a man who was filmed moments before his death by a reality show camera crew is continuing to seek legal action against the hospital and the network that airs the show.
