security camera in OR

  1. Has anyone ever heard of a facility using security cameras in an OR. I have over 15 years experience in surgery. I have recently hired in at a new facility where each suite has a security camera that is viewed by anyone who walks by at the pre-op and post-op desks.
    This is an invasion of privacy and a breech of patient confidentiality as far as I am concerned but I need to find information to back me up in order to present this to my new boss.
