    Better not. If you do not have the permissions from the hospital, and you happened to take pictures of the suffering patients that did not have their consents, you may be liable for lawsuits from both parties.

    I am not expert but now I think the original thread starter may be referring to "resuscitator" instead of "respirator".

    I think the layman term for "resuscitator" is "oxygen mask".

    You can always write in to the hospital admin and try your luck. I've have seen officially mandated photography in a hospital ICU and operating theare before, so it is not a definite no-no. Be transparent about what you want to do, what the photography is for etc. The 2 concerns here are 1) the patient's right to privacy and 2) interference with medical care. If you can convince the hospital admin that you will infringe neither, you may have a chance of a positive decision.

    Cheers

    I don't think it's allowed. You would need to go through the hospital cooperate office (PR or group comms department) Another place is to look for students in NYP nursing course or physiotherapy courses. School of nursing also can. They have some training on it. Another name for the machine is ventilator (quite a few modes of it also, Bipap, cpap, tracheal also have or just use a fascial mask also can)

    Hi dogfish,

    Dun think it's allowed in the hospital as some medical equipments can be sensitive to electronic devices. That's the reason why there's sign boards that politely request us to switch off all electronic devices esp mobile phones.

    However, if you write in for permission and supported with very good official reasons why you need to do it. They might let you do so and they will probably sent a nursing staff to follow you thru. The staff will be there to assist and guide you esp if some medical equipments are to fail suddenly.

    Hope it helps

    Didnt know it's not allowed. Went to take photos in a hospital for some handicap project i was doing. Wasn't stopped.

    Yep... Its not allowed.... Actually the respirator i was refering to was the electronic pump... the one that goes up and down.... then in the background woulda been the patient. Was just a shot i was thinking of doing in my free time so i guess no harm done. Didn't intend to have the background focused anyway.

    Cool Re: Photography in Hospitals

    bad news. i work in a hospital. was told that i can do photography on the equips ONLY WITH the permission of the relevant nursing officers. d hospital itself got a employed photographer, so other than d hospital newsletter & anything concerning abt MOH, no other publications r allowed.

    anyway, i only concern abt the scenery that i saw through the window from the ward. photograph patients? i would rather stay away, than having endless lawsuits.
