Patient Confidentiality Issues
Most people are not bothered by a video camera. In fact they tend to be
disappointed to find they are not going to be on tv. When we shoot video
in a public place, there is a general assumption that, photography and
videography are acceptable. Obviously we do shoot close-ups without
asking and we will not use shots of people who ask not to be included.
In shops and commercial premises we suggest that the client puts up
signs to the effect that “We are shooting a training video here today.
If you do not want to appear in any shots, please advise the video
With hospitals and other healthcare premises, patient confidentiality is
an issue. We can take shots where patients and visitors are not
recognizable – shots from the back, very distant shots, shots out of
focus, shots from the waist down or even shots with faces blurred out.
Where this is not practical, people are often happy to sign a release
form. We can hire supporting artists (or “extras”). In other situations,
if you want to show a busy clinic or hospital reception area, we suggest
the client calls for volunteers from their Friends association.
