Hidden Camera Found in Cleveland Clinic Bathroom

Hidden Camera Found in Cleveland Clinic BathroomIn a terrible invasion of privacy, a hidden camera was found recently inside a Cleveland Clinic Medina Hospital employee restroom.

According to Cleveland News 5, the device was discovered in mid-April but it was unknown as to how long it had been in the bathroom. The gender-neutral restroom was private and used by hospital staff only. There was no wireless network or device hooked up to the camera, and any footage caught by the camera remained there. However, there was some footage on the camera when it was discovered, police said.

An employee found the camera in the restroom, and soon afterward another employee was placed on administrative leave. The Cleveland Clinic issued a statement:

“We put an employee on administrative leave after a camera was found in a staff-only area. Employees in that area were notified, and we are fully supporting the Medina Police Department in its investigation.”

Cleveland 19 News reports that the camera looks like the base of a cellphone charger and can be purchased at stores like Wal-Mart for around twenty dollars. A small flashing blue light indicates when the camera is recording.

Cleveland Clinic plagued with problems

This is just the latest in a long line of legal woes for the Cleveland Clinic.

  • In January, a USA Today story revealed the Cleveland Clinic kept a surgeon on staff after he was accused of raping two patients.

  • In 2017, five doctors sued the Cleveland Clinic for being retaliated against after they reported that severely ill patients were being prematurely released or “dumped” to other hospitals.

  • In 2014, a neurosurgeon represented by partner Steve Crandall was awarded $7.7 million after eye surgery destroyed his pupil and left him unable to work again.

  • In 2008, the Clinic settled a case after a jury awarded the plaintiff nearly $16 million. The case involved a 6-year-old child who suffered brain damage when he was born with his umbilical cord wrapped around his neck.

The Cleveland Clinic remains one of the top-rated hospitals in the nation. However, that doesn't preclude its doctors and staff from negligence.
