New Yorkers should be careful not to take their Glass with them to the emergency room, as they may be violating hospital policy. Jim Mandler of Continuum Health Partner, which runs hospitals such as Beth Israel Medical Center and St. Luke's Hospital, said to Fast Company, "I would venture to say that we will probably have some kind of policy in place that would ban the use of these glasses until we learned more about them and their use, because it could impend on patient privacy."
Other hospitals, such as Mayo Clinic, already have guidelines restricting the use of recording devices on premises that extend to Glass. Mayo Clinic's chief compliance officer Kim Otte told Fast Company Glass is "just an iteration of previous technologies," and they have not had to amend their policy to address it.
