Friendly Reminder – Penn Medicine Filming and Photography Policy

Camera phones and tablet devices make it easy to snap photos anywhere, at any time. And events, such as the upcoming Philly Photo Day, held on Oct. 26 by the Philadelphia Photo Arts Center, encourage people to take photos with these devices in an effort to document their daily lives, not realizing that hospitals and health care facilities have policies in place regarding photos and videos on their grounds. To ensure the safety and privacy of our patients, staff should be observant of patients and visitors using their cell phones and other devices in patient care areas and alert the Department of Communications to any photography or filming issues by calling 215-662-2560. The full filming and photo policy is available online here:
