patient photos on Facebook

A nurse in Glasgow has been suspended after claims that she uploaded photos of patients onto Facebook. The photos, reportedly of individuals being operated on in theatre, were thought to be taken using a camera phone without the knowledge of other staff; patients are said to be unidentifiable in the photos. The nurse has been removed from her post whilst investigations are underway. The incident has raised debate about the use of mobile phone photography in hospitals.
