    Default Photography in Hospitals

    Hi guys,
    Just want to find out if anyone has any experience taking photos in hospitals.. Is it allowed? I intend to take someone on a respirator... Focus on the respirator with the patient out of focus. Anyone have any idea?
    thanks

    Depends on why you are doing it? Are you the supplier of this device? If so, you can try asking the ward/department for permission.... But if you lay person..... Er.... Not sure...

    Why would you want to take a photo of a human being in suffering? So many other things to shoot.

    why don't you ask the staff? i took photos in the hospital's delivery room during my son's birth, with the doctor's blessings.

    if the purpose is just plain photography for your own, no hospital should allow that. why would anyone want to put the patients on more stress for no good reason?

    U can book a studio and remake it to look like a hospital, then hire a model to act as the patient, and get a respirator as the prop.

    there's hospital 4 animal, birth (m i using d rite term? ) and A&E kind.

    i dun think hospitals 1 2 turn into another venue 4 our local hoard of photographers (newbies / hobbyists alike) (me included! ). i m sure they got more than they can handle rite now already.

    can any1 enlighten us if their turnover rate still v high?

    Hey! Look at the context of this thread.

    Dogfish wants to take a picture of a patient on a respirator. Do you know what that mean?

    Only two things.

    Either a tube plonked down your throat or a hole drilled into your throat!

    If you take pictures like that without clearance from the hospital, I guarantee you that you won't be a nurse for very long!

    for a layman, can it also mean a mask over the nose and mouth with a tube connected to a tank or oxygen outlet?
