Police: UVM Medical Center Doctor Hid Camera in Staff Bathroom

An emergency room physician at the University of Vermont (UVM) Medical Center was arrested Friday on multiple counts of voyeurism after Burlington Police said he hid a camera in a staff bathroom.

The Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations (CUSI) arrested 37-year-old Eike Blohm at his home after hospital security discovered the hidden “KNOWYOURNANNY” camera on Wednesday, reports NBC.

After searching Blohm’s home, office and car, investigators say they found a “large quantity” of videos in the camera and storage devices that constitute voyeurism and evidence that Blohm was the perpetrator.

“It should be noted that the preliminary review of the video evidence appears to show the unlawful conduct was isolated to a secured staff only bathroom inside UVMMC, which is not accessible to the general public. However, further examination and investigative review is forthcoming,” read a statement from CUSI.

Blohm is listed on the hospital website as an emergency medicine physician and assistant professor, reports Burlington Free Press. According to his UVM biography page, he is a former paramedic who redesigned the Emergency Medicine Research Associate Program and has led the team since 2017.

A statement from UMV Medical Center said Blohm has been placed on administrative leave.

“When the device was found, our staff did the right thing and contacted the Burlington Police Department, who immediately responded and conducted an investigation with our cooperation, and with support from our security team. The physician is on administrative leave pending resolution of the case,” read the statement. “We thank BPD and CUSI for their work. Our people provide the highest quality care for members of this community, and we will ensure they are supported and informed as we learn more about this unfortunate situation.”

If convicted, Blohm could face up to two years in prison and a $1,000 fine. He was released on a citation and is due in court for his arraignment on May 28.
