A friend was in hospital in America, so I gave a call and before an operator picked up I got the standard "Your call may be recorded for quality
assurance." When the operator came on I asked her about the recording, and she said that every call was recorded. "Even while talking to the patient?"
"Yes, the entire call". I informed her that that was disgusting, and she agreed, but laughed it away.
So....just surmising here....any discussion of a malpractice case (although I hope lawyers would be savvy not to talk about the case on a phone
connection to a patient's room) with friends or relatives, recorded. Discussions of illnesses, treatment by hospital staff, complaining about this,
that, or the other, even sports team preferences and private conversations with loved ones, recorded.
I have no idea if this is true of every hospital, but the one I phoned was a major and well known hospital.
Many won't be surprised by this. I still was.
