Ed Howard of Adventist Health/JLL discusses the policy and procedural challenges associated with these video surveillance devices.

It seems like practically every U.S. police department is buying or considering the adoption of body-worn cameras, but are they appropriate for hospitals? If so, how should they be deployed?
