The idiocy of hospital management is unlimited. Just when you think you've heard it all. I'm a long time nurse (and former manager) at another north state hospital. Aside from the privacy issues, this whole thing is indicative of a failed management. You don't monitor what's going on on your night shift with spy cameras. A competent manager monitors what's going on by being engaged and involved - by having reliable shift charge nurses who set the appropriate tone for their unit. I've followed the story of that night shift crew for a while and it's obvious they were allowed to engage in inappropriate practices for years by managers who couldn't be bothered to manage. When that kind of party atmosphere develops on a unit, the blame is on a unit manager not doing their job.
Putting cameras up like this just totally destroys any possibility of a relationship of trust and respect between nurses and management.
