SEOUL, June 14 (Korea Bizwire)Amid raging opposition from medical institutions against installing closed-circuit television cameras in operating rooms, some hospitals and clinics are stepping up to install CCTV cameras in order to regain trust from patients.

Recently, plastic surgery and orthopedic hospitals have reportedly been installing CCTV cameras in operating rooms.

Himchan Hospital, for one, has installed CCTV cameras in six operating rooms at its Bupyeong branch.

Last year, BK Plastic Surgery Hospital set up CCTV cameras in the doctor’s office as well as operating rooms, allowing guardians to watch real-time footage.

One smartphone application on plastic surgery introduced a search engine that offers hospital information that includes the availability of CCTV cameras.

“While setting up CCTV cameras in operating rooms is still a controversial issue, we can’t deny the fact that installing them relieves mistrust among patients,” said an industry official.

The Korean Medical Association, while criticizing the illegal practice of surrogate surgeries and other unethical medical treatment, has strongly denied that installing CCTV cameras is a viable solution, arguing that they infringe upon the doctor’s autonomy, incite defensive treatment, and violate patient privacy.
