Consider a hypothetical physical therapy clinic in California. It is my understanding that it would be against the laws of the clinic to video tape the patients without their knowledge. Please correct me if I am wrong on this. However, suppose the clinic had cameras that watched the patients as they received therapy and the cameras could be viewed by the management in real time but the images was not saved. Could the clinic legally do this without consent from the patients? There defense would be that there is no recording of the images.
When I wrote without their consent, I meant they were doing it without the patients knowing it was being done.
