Summary of events so far to the benefit of new visitors:Patient privacy and journalistic ethics

Ban journalists and TV cameras inside Indian hospitals! SUMMARY Two people claiming to be journalists entered Kasturba Hospital, Manipal Emergency Room and tried to take photos of patients inside the Emergency Room despite protests from patients and medical staff. Doctor on duty promptly took their camera and then hospital security kicked them out.

Caught red handed, these “journalists” (neither of them had any ID or accreditation) led by Udupi Press Club launched a protest against police, doctors, ministers (don’t ask us why they are pissed at the world)

This blog is an attempt to present other side of the story as journalists have reported only one side of the story. While at it we received many leads on these unethical journalists – so we are exposing them.

With all the disgusting coverage we have seen on media of late, we will be happy if something constructive comes out of this incident regarding how far media can go when it involves patient privacy, dignity in the hospitals of India.
