Ramsay Health Care recognises that unique and special moments arise in hospital that patients, families and friends may wish to capture on film. Westmead Private Hospital needs to ensure that patient safety, clinical teamwork, the privacy of other patient, staff members and medical personnel is not compromised. Devices that record both film and sound are not allowed in the operating suite, birth suites or special care nursery.
Single shot devices that do not record sound are permissible by agreement of the care team members present at the time.
Film and sound may be recorded in the privacy of a patient's own room, provided the privacy of other patients and staff members is not compromised.
