Put the Camera Phone Down

I'll concede that there is no sign in the emergency department that prohibits taking photos or videos with your cell phone.

There's also no sign in the ED prohibiting shooting people, but we don't allow that, either.

For those who may be unclear, let me spell it out - you cannot take photos of other patients during your ER visit. It violates patient privacy, it's creepy, and I'm guessing you wouldn't be too pleased if a video of you walking down the hallway with the back of your gown open showed up on YouTube.
