Several weeks ago, the medical staff was informed that cameras were installed in all areas of the hospital. In addition, management stated that this minimized deft in the workplace plus added staff protection and security. However, since then several nurses have been called to management office & writing up for various issues, after management viewing these videos. Therefore, my questions are should cameras be permitted in the workplace, and what do you say about invasion of privacy?
I work in home health and choose not to work in homes where cameras are in use, whether or not the client family has been forthright about their presence. My employers have always taken the stance that they are fine with it and I don't have to work if I don't like it.
Marie unquestionably, you're one of the lucky ones that has that option however, more than half of the staff where I work were all for it, and the other like myself wasn't in favor. None the less, the majority won, and the cameras are here to stay.
I can assure you that if I make my desire to work in a camera-free environment strong enough, my employer will see that I don't get work. They simply don't bother with nurses who do not accept or stay with clients. There are far too many nurses who will work under any and all kinds of circumstances. That makes it difficult for those who have different standards.
